The Rich and famous and their hired help are not always the brightest and smartest.
they forgot the "ironic" quotes around "actress".
personally, i would have called Uncle Jesse for help...
Well he was in her apartment at the time so it kind of makes sense.
45 minutes between when she arrived and when the medical people showed up?
Dan would have fucked him.
Mr. Poe, that's uncalled for.
who is this Mary Olsen and why does she have her own police force? is this important to the case?
And it was NOT her apartment, duh. Yes, I know, that was the initial report, but it's not true.
Back in the day, you called one of Frank's "people" when you had a "situation" ... now, you call an Olsen twin. How times have changed.
The rich and famous don't follow the same bounds of convention as we do, especially in regards to Laws.
Is it right? Nope.
And Mr. Poe, you're supposed to talk about what you would do (e.g. Mr Poe says "I would have f...ed him, except he was too old for me at 28, so I'll let Dan have him.")
A normal-thinking person would have called 911 within 5 minutes. But I have a feeling if you're a masseuse for hollywood celebrities, you get used to walking in on unconscious people, setting up around them and rousing them long enough to get on the massage table. Oh, and calling other celebrities before alerting the authorities - privacy before safety, kids!
Our criminal justice system encourages us not to call 9-1-1 for medical assistance if illegal drugs might be involved. My guess is that Olsen referred Ms. Wolozin to a celebrity "I think my friend may have overdosed" service.

will: I think poe woulda said "I would have f...ed him, except he was too young for me at 28, so I'll let Dan have him."
'cause it seems The Poe has a sexxy daddy thing going on. or perhaps i read too much into his admiration of older politico types...nah he likes 'em aged, like fine port and the best stinky cheese.
I would have fucked him, provided rigor mortis hadn't set in.
We should put Ms Olsen in charge of Iraq. She seems to be pretty darned efficient when it comes to troop surges.
@14: Everything Mr. Poe writes makes me laugh, including "and" and "the." I have never seen anyone strike such genius onto the page with so few words in my life.
I think I might be a little in like with Mr. Poe.
Jub. T. C...pone:
OMG. me 2. I loves him. he's made slog a better and sexxier place. him and neopolitan the 13th. rowrr for those guys, mmmm baby.
ur kinda sweet too.
Hey! I'll have you know those talented little Olsen twins can do more than just show up at a Marc Jacobs show and do their patented monkey face! Hmmph!
Let's be fair--for once: if I walked in on Dan Savage sleeping and couldn't wake him up, I'd be a little hesitant to 911 right off the bat. I wouldn't call Andrew Sullivan to ask what to do, but I'd likely call Rakoff. David always knows what to do.
Net-net, it was a difficult and confusing situation, so tread lightly on the judgements.
And the masseuse called 911 when she realized Ledger wasn't breathing.
I bet any gay male on this Slog would have checked out his SWEET ass and whatever else, just cause that is the way we are.
Calling 911 should always be the first line --- always.
I think I have saved several lives by such calls, a neighbor in heart seizure, a druggie in shock in the empty house down the block
CALL 911 - ALWAYS, FIRST.
Freddy -- but as Phil M points out @13 points out the laws in many states actively discourage folks from calling 911 in cases of drug overdose.
In Seattle, for example, if you call 911 to report a drug overdose you are quite likely to have the police show up along with the medics.
It is for this reason that New Mexico passed a good Samaritan law last year that essentially holds folks harmless in such situations.
FINE. Fine, you fuckers. I'm taking Mary-Kate Olsen off speed dial and next time I find somebody passed out or I hear gunshots, I won't call her. I'll call, like, that 9-1-whatever phone number like YOU know-it-alls said.
I still think Mary-Kate is the one to call first but if I'm going to be hearing bitch bitch bitch about it afterwards then it ain't worth it. Fuck it then. But the very next call I make is damn well going to be an Olsen twin, like mom taught me.
Much like Bellevue Ave, Mary Kate's security guard was preoccupied with the ramifications of the recent interest rate cuts, and was thus held up and arrived too late to attend to poor Mr. Ledger.
Why Mary-Kate and not Ashley? Which is which? I love the Olsen twins!!! The cutest little mafioso (mafiosas???) evarrrr......
As I see it, the number one problem is that Ledger was "friends" with Mary-Kate Olsen.
Had Danny Tanner been there, Heath Ledger might still be alive today.
Now I'm just confused.
It's just stupid, Will. Stupid and sad.
Everyone knows that you need both Olsen twins to bring the dead back to life.
It's is very, very sad to think it's possible he could have been saved with faster - and more intelligent - action.
Maybe they went to anorexia rehab together or something. Who knows?
What I want to know is what use someone could possibly have for a rolled up twenty dollar bill other than to snort something with it? Was he such a coke head that he just rolled up twenty dollar bills involuntarily, even when there was no coke around? I'm thinking they are saying there were no "narcotics" on the bill. I'm pretty sure he was crushing and sniffing prescription medication. Maybe medication that Mary-Kate gave him, hmmmmmmmmm...
