Charlton Heston, 1923-2008

What a loss. He was a great American, and a great old guy.

I'll never forget the time he called Rush Limbaugh's show to read a great excerpt from "Jurassic Park," that STILL had more common sense on climate change than a thousand NY Times editorials...His majestic voice laying out those arguments over the airwaves was just fabulous!

[UPDATE--Thanks to Mike at PatDollard, here is the Jurassic Park reading!]

Not to mention Moses and Ben-Hur...And three times prez of the NRA...And marching in the streets with the civil rights movement in the 1960s, when other Hollywood stars kept quiet to avoid offending people...

What a loss.
