Film legend Charlton Heston dead at 84

LOS ANGELES -- Charlton Heston, who won the 1959 best actor Oscar as the chariot-racing "Ben-Hur" and portrayed Moses, Michelangelo, El Cid and other heroic figures in movie epics of the '50s and '60s, has died. He was 84.

Read the entire article at the link above.... I especially appreciate this snippet:

The couple celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 1994 at a party with Hollywood and political friends. They had been married 64 years when he died.

Actor, activist, and a man who honored his commitments. What's not to respect?

God speed, and God bless, Mr. Heston. We'll miss you.
