From my cold dead hand...you damned dirty ape!!!


Yup, sad but true. Charlton Heston, dead at 84.

You know, I've been listening all day as people have publicly lauded his acting career while simultaneously distancing themselves from ole' Chuck's political leanings as if he were a leper (Any parallels to Ben-Hur are purely coincidental). It's sad enough to lose a legend (Yup, I said legend), but to completely dismiss the courage of his convictions because such convictions make you uncomfortable (A sure sign that such ideas have merit),well... IT'S A MAD HOUSE!!! A MAD HOUSE!!!



Here's to you Mr. Heston. It might have taken fifty some-odd years, but you are finally permitted to cross over that river Jordan. So let it be written, so let it be done.

Nope. Cause of death is apparently "Ape Related".

Oddly enough, he was actually crushed to death by a Roman chariot. Tag! You're it!
