Philip Seymour Hoffman was a rare talent and one of a kind who will be missed by millions.

Yeah, well, the no talent, loser celebrities get more air time, too. I know more about Douche Bag Bieber than I every wanted, all because I watch the news. Get real.

Do you mourn all the cancer victims, the children that die of hunger, the victims of domestic violence, the inner city youth gunned down in gang wars, the pitiful lost junkies, the victims of suicide, homicide and accidents? You must not have any time for anything else because you are constantly grieving.

Good for you.

We aren't comparing those people/sicknessess...just an actor and a soldier...way to take it totally out of context.

Soldiers choose to enlist, and their deaths are indeed mourned by their families and those who knew them best. Should I also mourn for every person who died of cancer, victims of needless violence, and suicide victims as well?

This has been going on since the beginning of Hollywood.

Any time a soldier dies from our area it's covered on the news. And they mention it again when they have the funeral.

A lot of people know who actors are, so it makes sense that it would be a bigger story.

Why? You compare the value of a soldier's life with an actor's life. Why not take it that step further? Why don't ALL the deaths get equal coverage? Isn't every life just as valuable? Hmm?
