Charlton “Chuck” Heston

“It’s been quite a ride. I loved every minute of it.” Charlton Heston

Charlton Heston passed away over the weekend and though no cause of death was given, the most likely reason will be complications from the Alzheimer’s he suffered from over the past 6 – 7 years. Although I never cared for his “politics” in his later years, I always did enjoy watching movies he starred in, especially the first “Planet of the Apes” (“Take your stinking paws off of me you damn dirty ape!”), “Soylent Green” (“It’s people. Soylent Green is made out of people.”) and “The Omega Man” (“Build coffins. That’s all you’ll need.”) Also, he always seemed to be a genuine gentleman in any interviews I ever saw of him.

And I’m sure it’s going to be on blogging posts all over the Internet, but I’ll say it anyway;

Someone go pry the gun out of his cold dead hand.

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
