PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN R.I.P.
I never met him, but I knew people who had worked with him, and they had good things to say about him. It is so terrible and sad that he had too go while still at the peak of his artistry. The saddest thing about it, and about addiction in general, is how many others are hurt by it besides the addict, like family and friends, but saddest of all, the addict's kids.
May they recover someday from the trauma of losing their father so early in their lives, and may the rest of his family and friends do so too. His troubles are over, but the troubles this kind of death cause unfortunately aren't.
