RIP, Charlton Heston

Charlton Heston as MosesCharlton Heston died yesterday at the age of 84. His movie career was most notable for his starring roles in historical dramas of the type that featured “casts of thousands”. That was when you had to use thousands of actual people, rather than computer generated multitudes. No matter how many roles he played, on and off screen, I, and many others, will always think of him as Moses.

Mr. Heston led a long, full life, and although I didn’t agree with him on much, he was clearly guided by his honest view of what was right. Therefore, I will not make any cracks about how I guess they can pry that gun from his hands now. Because that would be tasteless. So I’m not gonna do it.

    You have to respect the fact that he did what he felt was right regardless of what end of the political spectrum he was on. He marched with King and then became President of the NRA.
