For Charlton Heston (1923-2008)

The Baptist and Moses was he,
Michaelangelo and El Cid too, see,
But for sure, down the ages,
In film history's pages,
As Ben Hur, remembered he'll be!

The New York Times 06/04/08: Charlton Heston, Epic Film Star and Voice of N.R.A., Dies at 84. Read about it here

    Heston protected us against mutants as Robert Neville, against the Soylent Company in Soylent Green and against evolved monkeys in The Planet of Apes. Must he rest in peace.

  5. But before doing all these, he was the big dady of all... as Moses he had laid down the Ten Commandments for humanfolk, not forgetting the "make-way-for-me-sea-here-I-come" feat (aka Basudev's feat in the Mahabharata) ;-)
