Robin Williams' death really hit me harder than celebrity deaths normally do. The only one I can remember being as hard to hear about what Phillip Seymour Hoffman's last year (which I indirectly commented on here: These two guys were two of my favorite actors, and additionally they both struggled very publicly with things I also struggle with (drug addiction and depression). I will not comment in detail now on the issue of suicide, though I may do so in coming months. I was struck by this article, which I for one thought was very apt:
