Wow - that´s a shocker. We caught a few moments of the movie ´Twister´ a couple nights ago and he was one of the weather nerds in the movie. I was thinking he looked like a party animal. May he rest in peace.

FTA: The news of the death of Hoffman comes just one day after representatives for the actor issued a statement denying he was dead after an internet hoax claimed the star had passed away on Saturday.

How strange is that? Hoffman was a talented actor whose demons finally gained the upper hand. If he was in fact found dead with a needle in his arm, did he get what author William Burroughs, himself a heroin addict, called a "hot shot"?

Gee, aren´t drugs great? Don´t they bring so much to society? Isn´t it great that the libs and a subset of libertarians think there is nothing wrong with promoting, legalizing, having the government and taxpayer money involved in "testing for purity" and just letting the drugs flow everywhere?

Awesome isn´t it!

Demons? A troubled soul? Just because he´s famous and has talent makes him no less sympathetic than a street thug selling the poisonous drugs who dies in a hail of bullets or by taking his own product in excess. Some sympathy yes, for the wasted life, but in the end, the rules apply even to them what has lots of money and attitude "I do what I want". I wish peace for the family and friends who must now deal with the loss.

You know there´s an ad on the radio all the time that says prescription overdoses kill more people than heroin and coke combined.Being a junkie is trending now so I don´t believe it.

i know this guy´s face but I can´t place it.Was he in one of the mission impossible movies?

No, #3, drugs aren´t great, but that doesn´t give the federal government the authority to regulate them. That police power is constitutionally reserved to the States (not that anyone cares much about the Constitution...).

If heroin weren´t illegal, it could be purchased from Sandoz or Johnson&Johnson. It would be clean, taxed, regulated, and safer than what is available on today´s black market.

I don´t use drugs, nor do I condone drug use, but I don´t see that our War on Drugs has brought us anything but death, imprisonment, and a militarized police force.

I´m sorry to learn about Hoffman. He was a good actor and seemed like a nice guy.

It makes me so angry that people gifted with so much talent destroy themselves with drugs. Heath Ledger, River Phoenix as well. Some here may not care because they were just actors, but these were actors that transcended the whole lot in their craft. Other actors would sacrifice a limb for their ability. And what do they do with it?

May he RIP. I understand he struggled with heroin addiction for a long time, actually staying clean for over a decade. Prayers for his family and for the next super-talent who, hopefully, will be able to withstand the pressures of fame and the corrosive entertainment industry.

#3 also is in favor of big nanny-state government telling us how much sugar, salt, tobacco, alcohol and fat we may ingest as well as how many hours per week we must work out. For our daily dose of mental health exercises, I´m sure #3 advocates reading passages from Chairman Mao´s Little Red Book.

#8, yeah it does. Because we the people asked for strong drug laws. If we didn´t, there would be a heck of a lot more people screaming about making all drugs legal besides some misguided people and druggies.

A pretty smart guy once said that the war on drugs is like weeding your lawn. The weeds will never completely go away, but you control it the best you can so the lawn is decent.

I don´t want a gambling den, prostitutes or drugs going on in the house next door. That is why there are laws. I don´t want my daughter dying in ER because she had contact with LSD paper and they didn´t know what was wrong with her. I have had two of my best friends die from drugs, drugs that immediately got hooks into them. Unlike drinking and smoking.

I don´t want MY government, and my tax dollars, going to "regulating" and having anything to do with drugs.

You are living in a dream world, a masturbatory fantasy, if you think Johnson and Johnson would market heroin.

Warped thinking.

A classmate of my son, a sweet girl, in her early 30´s, died of a heroin overdose this past week. She was troubled from middle school on, from an abusive childhood. She moved to NYC from the Midwest and she died there. Her father, the abuser, was not mentioned in the obituary. Heroin is claiming many lives.

Hey #16, go pound sand. Drugs are a plague on our society and there is no comparison to the legality of those versus the government overreach in everything you said.

Of course, liberals, socialists and communists LOVE the idea of legal drugs. A stoned, druggied populace is easier to control. Stupid idea of course, as it would destroy the "working class", but no one said these people were bright.

I am sorry that you, your friends or family got locked up for selling/taking drugs. But if that is what you or they did, that is exactly where you all belong.

This has is definitely going to throw a wrench into the "Hunger Games" franchise. He always tended to make my skin crawl on screen which hopefully wasn´t his real persona (MI3). Another of Hollyweird´s complete failure to control their actors through a contract that stops this drug behavior though "random" checks.

RIP.

#26 -- the "skin crawl thing" resonates with me too. Hopefully it was his talent for being true to the character roles he played and not his true self. He was a good actor and I´m sorry for his family.

Why do these people, who have so much to live for, self-destruct? Lack of real values to stabilize their lives?

PSH played a cynical radio DJ in Pirate Radio (2009). Entertaining movie. Takes place late 1960s on a ship broadcasting off the coast of Britain because the BBC wouldn´t play rock ´n roll. The movie never got much publicity, but if you were a child of the 60s music scene, it´s a fun watch.

I´m so very sorry to read this. He was one of my favorite actors. The list of his extraordinary performances is too numerous to mention, but his Rusty in Flawless was, well, flawless. He was wonderful, and I always looked forward to his next movie. He was not just a performer; he was an actor, able to completely disappear into a character. Even if I didn´t care for a movie he may have been in, I was always fascinated to watch him work. His gift for comeday or drama seemed to be unlimited. What is it about the extraordinarily gifted that they sometimes can´t live in the real world without the help of some way to numb the pain? I´m not excusing; I´m asking. I believe the world to be diminished without the contributions of Philp Seymour Hoffman. I will miss him. RIP.

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Atlanta Braves legend Hank Aaron is reportedly "upset" and "bitter" because he feels that readers -- not the reporter who wrote the story -- took his comments that implied those who opposed President Barack Obama´s policies now wear "neckties and starched shirts" instead of KKK hoods out of context. And the reporter who wrote the story is claiming Aaron should not have to apologize for something he never said because Aaron was talking about CEOs, American society, and corporate America and not referring to a political party. Last week, in a story that appeared the day before Aaron was honored

Beleaguered X-Men director Bryan Singer has dropped out of an upcoming “Creativity Conference” in Washington, a source tells THR. The filmmaker, who is being sued by a 31-year-old man who alleges Singer sexually abused him in the late 1990s, was scheduled to appear along with Vice President Joe Biden at the conference, which is being co-sponsored by the Motion Picture Association of America, Microsoft and ABC News as

Amy Kremer, one of the original Tea Party activists who participated in the February 20, 2009 call that launched the movement and played a key role as scheduler of the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party rallies, resigned on Friday as chairman of Tea Party Express, a position which she has held since the summer of 2009. Tea Party Express, a political action committee known for its national bus tours, was one of the first national organizations to successfully raise money through appeals to Tea Party supporters and activists. The group played a significant role in helping Tea Party

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
