Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange made jokes about the recent death of Heath Ledger during a Feb. 2 comedy show in Las Vegas, and the New York post reports New York City tour company Rich and Famous Tours has added the SoHo apartment where Ledger was found dead to its list of stops.
Both actions have prompted some to ask, “Is it too soon for this sort of thing?” No one asked me, but I say yes.
Too soon? When will it ever be time to joke about the death of a human being? Too soon? How about yes, it is not only too soon, it is too callous, too tacky, too pathetic?
