“If you need a ceiling painted, a chariot race run, a city besieged, or the Red Sea parted, you think of me.”

Charlton Heston passes away at 83.

[UPDATE] I like this snippet from the Guardian:

To his detractors, Heston could be an inflexible, monolithic presence, weighed down by his own mantle of heroism and pious sense of virtue. Others took a more charitable view. Assessing the actor’s cultural impact, the critic Pauline Kael hailed him as “a god-like hero, built for strength. He is an archetype of what makes Americans win. He represents American power - and he has the profile of an eagle.”

    Not to mention if you happened to get harrassed by ‘damn dirty apes’. I hate when that happens.
