Depressing Note

I think the saddest thing in the world is this, the Wikipedia entry for Bobby Driscoll, who was the model and voice actor for Disney's Peter Pan. He died of drug addiction, in a NYC abandoned tenement, alone.

1 million died to make Peter Pan.

Dropped because of acne. Doesn't puberty suck enough? Curious as to why you were reading his Wiki entry.

I think I initially started reading it because I'm writing an article on homelessness (sort of) for my journalism class, and when doing a google search his name came up as having once been homeless. And then I started reading it and just pretty much kept reading the whole thing. I felt so bad. What a tragic end for Peter Pan!
