http://apnews.myway.com/article/20080406/D8VSE49G0.html

The actor died Saturday night at his home in Beverly Hills with his wife Lydia at his side.

RIP Mr Heston.

No votes yet

I hope he died, as he said he intended to, with his cold, dead fingers gripped on his rifle. I hope Mr. Heston, with a never-ending amount of ammunition, is picking off angels left and right in his well-deserved Heaven.

Patience is a great virtue.

not with Government regulation. When govt takes away freedom, citizens are in trouble.
His movies are classics that show old values that are now out of style. He had a long marriage too

There will be as many comments filled with hatred and vitriol directed toward him as there will be compliments. But in the end, he was just a man. This is the time to remember the hours of entertainment he gave us, not politics.

The Planet of the Apes was FORTY years ago???

Lord, I'm going to have to tell the gang at Bob Evans about that when I go there for supper tonight at 4:30.

Listen, me and Pooh have had just about enough of you. With righteous vengeance, and with the spirit of C.H. guiding us, we're locking and loading and going out to look for you. Make sure your chambers are filled. But, remember, Charlie H., God, all things holy, and bullet-proof vests are on our side. OK, Pooh, let's recon. Oh, damn, the little shit bear wants more honey. Be with you in a minute, Dark. Be blessed and get rid of your ridiculous addendum, D.S. Or else go through life not knowing when eagle-eyed, honey-covered Pooh has got a lock on you and has a trigger-happy paw.

Patience is a great virtue.

I went thru that once with the BananaSpanker and was told that these "addendums" are some kind of tag that only the internet savvy people know about and use.

They are totally cool among the 'in' crowd.
Apparently the rest of us are just 'uncool'.

I have enrolled Mr. Darkness in my 'Re-Education Center' to help him deal with a repulsive smoking habit of his, and he has yet to show up.

He is an unconvinced, rabid smoker that refuses to change his ways.
I see little hope in your convincing him to change.

Mahico from Jalisco,
Smoke 'em if you got 'em. Puff, puff, puff away. Pooh likes menthols. The smoke sometimes blinds his sniper's eye. But be forewarned. Pooh dislikes misspellers as much as Republicans and ordinary idiots. Consult a dictionary next time you try to type "savvy" or else face the wrath of Pooh "Heston ain't got nothin' on me" Bear. This bear is heavily armed and all of his chambers are loaded. Oh bother, I think he and I will go hunting for D.S.

Patience is a great virtue.

and it did not look right to me. It looked like a 'w', so I took a shot at it and went with one'v'. Oh well......

BTW, I'd back down off of Darkie..... He is a born TROLL. He can give it but he can't take it.

He might poop his pants with just the thought that SOMEONE ELSE might say they are chambering a round to go hunting for him, and he'll go run to the prosecutor.

After he consults his attorney, provided by RSARP.

"Oh, Bother !" said el Mahico, as he chambered his next to last round.

Charlton Heston was an early political activist, a strong opponent of segragation, a supporter of Lyndon Johnson's Gun Control Act of 1968, and an opponent of our involvement in Vietnam:

Just where, when and why he was led astray from those noble viewpoints I have no idea, LOL. Oh, here it is: he voted for Richard Nixon in 1972. Probably the tipping point right there.

RIP

PHAROAH! LET MY SPIRIT GO!

(With everone else using the "cold dead hands" line, I figured I've got to go somewhere else.)

here's the text of a speech CH delivered in 1999 to the Harvard Law School

The site itself is very cool by the way - a link to many famous speeches
