Obit: Charlton Heston

Anyone who's ever scanned an eye over my profile knows I'm fond of Charlton Heston, so I think I have to say a few words.

I'll always love him for his pioneering work of sneering at hippies.

He was a reactionary old sod, a trait I begrudgingly always admire. This is probably what gave a believable darkness to all his performances. He couldn't be anything other than an anti-hero, even if he tried.

So someone can now try and wrestle that gun from his cold, dead hands.

"A gun in the hands of a bad monkey is a bad thing. Any gun in the hands of a good monkey is no threat to anyone, except bad monkeys"
wasn't that on of his?
Bless him.

"Guns don't kill people, Damn Dirty Apes kill people. With guns". Or something like that.
