Keith Ledger -- Who's That?!?!

Keith Ledger -- Who's That?!?!

The news of Heath Ledger‘s untimely death dominated search engines yesterday.

All things Heath filled up ten of the top 20 most popular search words, according to Google. Search strings included his family (former fiancee Michelle Williams and their daughter Matlida Ledger), his apartment address (421 Broome Street), and his most famous movies (10 Things I Hate About You and Brokeback Mountain).

Curiously enough, Americans don’t know how to spell and the second most popular search string yesterday was “KEITH LEDGER.” Smart!

Even smarter are the search strings found at #50 and #58 at Google Trends. Ridiculous!

    If you don’t know enough about him to spell his name correctly, why would you google him? Hilarious. Some people just like to be right on top of things I guess.

    It’s sad about his passing. I don’t know when people are going to quit dabbling with drugs. Or what it will take to convince people that it’s not worth risking everything for. It seems to be a one-way ticket to death yet you just never know when you are dealing with a leathal combo. People continue drug use because it’s not currently killing them. I doubt Ledger wanted to die but that’s the reality now. There are no guarantees with drugs. People are needlessly dying to achieve some “high” that doesn’t really matter. I feel worse for the people he left behind than I do for him. But hopefully God will rest his soul anyway.

    No big deal about the misspellings and the searches that are a tad off. People were interested in finding out about him now that he’s dead. They want to know what was going on with him before he died so that they can get a better feel for him as a person. A lot of folks I know didn’t even know who he was. They realized who he was when I mentioned that he was the baby’s daddy of “the other girl” from Dawson’s Creek.
