    So we all agree it's OK to speak ill of the terminally ill? How nice for you and George. They both have their constitutional rights. But I will bet you $$$$$ that people will remember Heston's many movies and the quality of his acting, long after we are saying George who?

    Charlton Heston was a schmuck. If George was "mean" to him I'm sure Heston could have taken care of himself with his many, many, many guns.

    As a Kentuckian I am extremely proud of George.
