Touch of Class.

A news report today says that the family of Heath Ledger is transferring his estate to daughter Matilda Rose.

Seems Ledger never updated his will and left everything to his parents and sisters.

It's a touching, sane and ethical thing I find, that the family realizes that had he updated his will it is likely all would have gone to her anyway.

In an age of I want I want I want - gimmie gimmie gimmie - mine mine mine, this is refreshing, and indeed touching.

That is a very selfless thing to do.
I would venture a guess that they are such decent people, because they live in Australia, literally half a world away from the United States of Crassness.

Meanwhile, Heath's insurance company is holding off on paying out his policy to Matilda. Even though his death was ruled an accident, they're investigating suicide. A-holes.

Kinda proves my theory. It's an AMERICAN insurance company, right?
