god is dead

Well, Charlton Heston, anyway. Farewell to one of the last real movie stars.


Despite his gun-nutty religiosity, I can't help but fondly remember the man that brought me Planet of the Apes, Soylent Green, and The Omega Man, three of the most wonderful science-fiction films of all time.

Somebody said he had Alzheimer's? I wouldn't wish that on anyone...

My father is in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's. It scares the crap out of me, because even at 70 I expect that someday he will go, but losing another father will ultimately kill me.

That said, I sure as hell hope that the decisions and convictions were made because of the disease, much like Reagan. Otherwise I still hold him as demonesque.

While I greatly dislike the politics of the man, I love the artist.
