Re "Actor's death spotlights upsurge in heroin abuse" (Page A1, Feb. 4): Who really cares? I am 65 years old and all my life we have been told that drugs kill. Do not use as they destroy lives. People continue to make bad choices and use drugs.
Why honor them when they die from their choice of recreation? Do we honor the poor addict in the back streets of our cities or only those who have money or a acting talent?
Really, who cares? Philip Seymour Hoffman was an intelligent adult who chose drugs over the highs of life. The young adults of America read how a drug addict is now a lost hero. A lost role model. The majority of citizens could care less about an addicts' poor choice.
