Ben Hur star Charlton Heston dies

Quote from: BBC Web Shite
Charlton Heston, who won a best actor Oscar for his starring role in the epic Ben Hur has died, a spokesman for the star's family has said.

Heston died on Saturday at his home in Beverly Hills with his wife Lydia, whom he married in 1944, at his side.

Heston also portrayed Michelangelo, El Cid and other heroic figures in movie epics of the 1950s and 1960s.

out of interest does anyone know if they are going to Bury Charlton or just strap him to a horse?  whistle:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

Labour MP Gwyneth Dunwood has passed away. I knew little of her, but I did see her on TV a few times questioning interrorgating some high flying Whitehall mandarins. She was fiercesome and stood no shit off anybody. A bit like Mrs Wordsworth my primary school teacher, put the fear of god in me but I never forgot much of what she said
