R.I.P. Charlton Heston

The actor best known for his roles in Planet of the Apes, The Ten Commandments, The Omega Man and assorted gun nuttery, passed on at the age of 84. There was no disclosed reason for his death at this time.

I wonder, is a Soylent Green joke too soon?


  1. According to msnbc :

    Heston revealed in 2002 that he had symptoms consistent with Alzheimer’s disease, saying, “I must reconcile courage and surrender in equal measure.”
    This more than likely contributed.

    Though I didn’t agree with his political views, I greatly admire his character.
    He was a very strong man, inside and out.

  2. I hope there aren’t any apes on his way to the pearly gates
