Charlton Heston RIP

The Ten Commandments, Ben Hur, and El Cid are some of my family's favorite movies. We all have a special fondness in our hearts for Charlton Heston. He died on April 5th. There are no Hollywood heroes like him today. Charlton Heston was married to his wife for 64 years. Heston was the president and spokesman of the NRA from 1998 until he resigned in 2003.

In their obituary of Charlton Heston, The Washington Post declared: “Hate his politics or love them, you have to say: There was a man.”

We need more men like him.
