There was a dealer involved. Who? We know who John Belushi's dealer was. Who was Hoffman's? What celebrity-sucking dealer provided 70 bags? What was his/her name? Are they now off to some other celeb to destroy with drugs?

Who was it? Someone has to know. Why isn't there pressure from media to out the dealer? "Creative demons" indeed. One demon is all you need. All celebs are hounded unto death by these scum.

Who was it?

misspelling of "Seymour" was corrected. Good to know someone reads these comments!

His performance in "Love Liza" was so believable - sadly, now I wonder if he did not have to reach that far to step in to the shoes of that character. It will be a haunting thing to watch again.
