Mitch Hedberg[edit]

"In 2005, Hedberg's drug use seemed to spiral out of control. At a performance in Phoenix, Arizona in February, Hedberg nearly collapsed on stage and asked the audience for drugs, which he then ingested onstage."

I think a statement of this nature needs to have attribution if it's going to be on this page. I can't find any mention of such an anecdote in any stories about Hedberg's death. Out of respect for the deceased, I don't want it to remain on the page without attribution just because it seems to fit with what we know about Hedberg's problems with drug abuse.

  • The "performance" link on the Mitch Hedberg page points to an external site that appears to confirm the statement. — RJH 17:20, 1 Apr 2005 (UTC)
    • There are two sites on the talk page in fact which confirm this, as well as several others I've run across in the meantime. I don't see why it necessarily needs to be linked on the page itself.--TheGrza 17:57, Apr 15, 2005 (UTC)....(later) Also, Edits should never be made "out of respect for the deceased", but with truth, accuracy, meaningfulness, and possibly "The American Way".--TheGrza 18:01, Apr 15, 2005 (UTC)
