CNN Reports: Charlton Heston has symptoms consistent with Alzheimer's

Just reported on CNN:


Actor Charlton Heston says he has symptoms consistent with Alzheimer's and is saying so now because he may not be able to later. Full story soon.


*edit* I have taken out a word that was perceived wrongly. I certainly do not believe Mr Heston or anyone deserves this terrible disease. And I apologize if anyone you thought I did.

It is just very sad.
He is one of our greatest actors.
He is a class act.

You don't have to agree with his opinions on the second amendment to admire and respect his body of work.

He gave a classy, eloquent, and courageos speech.

I hope some of you caught it.

I read it, deep, but now I want to hear it.

As U2 fans, most of us will think we need to target him for his pro-gun segment in the "Bullet The Blue Sky" intro on the Elevation Tour, and ridicule him for that and wish "karma" upon him for that and what not. But if we focus on that, we will overlook the fact that he took a courageous march with a friend of his, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

It was the opening segment on On the Record with Greta Van Susteren
Fox News Channel. It repeats on the west coast in a couple of hours, check your listings.

I think he is just odd period. I was not making my comment based on my opinion of his views on anything. He can do whatever he wants for the NRA.

karma? wtf???

I find that comment very offensive, this is a terrible thing for him and his family, last I knew Mr. Heston had comitted no crimes or sins against others, so why this ill-will? I just don't understand that. And no, you don't have to have "sympathy" for him if that's the attitude you wish to assume, but please don't suggest he deserves this.

even though i do not agree with mr. heston's views on the second amendment, i do feel bad for him and his family. alzheimer's is something no one should have to deal with. it's sad to see so many great men get this crippling disease. especially since they're famous, i only pray they can live the rest of their life in dignity and not be made fun of by the press.

yeah, I don't always agree with Heston's views, but I respect the man; it's similar with another high-profile Republican, and I can only shudder to think at what some people said when they discovered that former President Reagan was diagnosed with Alzheimer's

By means of his unerring advocacy of the misinterpreted right to bear arms, Heston bears partial responsibility for every gun-related death, in my opinion. You'd think that the NRA would be more interested in keeping guns under control and keeping people safe rather than giving gun owners free-liscence to do what they will with them.

Alzheimer's is a bad way to go. I hope he has a pleasant rest-of-life, and I wish the best for his family.

Gah, the only conservative actor I could stand. Damn, and he liked jazz, too.
