Ledger Story Derails Feds
What a world when the high road in the Heath Ledger story is taken by George Bush.
George Bush has postponed a scheduled statement promoting a federal advertising campaign on the dangers of prescription drug abuse. White House press secretary Dana Perino confirmed that the decision was taken in light of the death of actor Heath Ledger.Good for Dubya. (OK, that really hurt to say.)
It is still unclear what caused the death of the 28-year-old Brokeback Mountain star, but prescription drugs are suspected to have played a role. "We thought it would be better to postpone the event rather than run the risk of anyone thinking that we were being opportunistic in highlighting the issue," Ms Perino said.
