Heath Ledger: the internet responds

I am, of course, saddened by the loss of Mr. Ledger, whose work I have enjoyed many times, most recently in I’m Not There. I feel unqualified to honor the man’s memory or reminisce about his affect on culture, so I offer these links instead.

Harry Knowles has a mature, sober appraisal

Variety takes a more hard-headed, businesslike approach

While I Can Has Cheezburger offers a touching tribute of their own.
