Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Moses.&#160 Ben Hur.&#160 John the Baptist.&#160 Marc Antony.&#160 Henry VIII.&#160 El Cid.&#160 Andrew Jackson.&#160 Al Murdoch.&#160 Stewart Graff.&#160 NRA president.&#160 Charlton Heston was all these, and much more.

My first memory of his acting ability was over 30 years ago, when he starred as the aforementioned Al Murdoch in Airport 1975.&#160 As I was more than just a little bit fascinated with the 747 at the time, it was a film I would eventually see in its first run no fewer than 25 times.

No.&#160 I’m not kidding.&#160 (I was a kid back then, what can I say?)

The former actor, Screen Actors Guild and later NRA president (and he who should&#160 have been US president during the ’90s, IYAM) passed away Saturday at the age of 84.

“Charlton Heston was seen by the world as larger than life. He was known for his chiseled jaw, broad shoulders and resonating voice, and, of course, for the roles he played,” Heston’s family said in a statement. “No one could ask for a fuller life than his. No man could have given more to his family, to his profession, and to his country.”

1998 saw Heston elected to the presidency of the National Rifle Association,

for which he had posed for ads holding a rifle. He delivered a jab at then-President Clinton, saying, “America doesn’t trust you with our 21-year-old daughters, and we sure, Lord, don’t trust you with our guns.”

In a later speech for the NRA, he also delivered this line:

President Heston – you are mourned, sir, and you will be sorely missed.&#160 I pray there is another like you in our midst, but I seriously wonder at this point.
