A word about Ron Silver
We got the news that Ron Silver died over the weekend. He had been fighting cancer for a few years.
Like many of us, Ron Silver got a big wake up call on 9-11.
Silver understood that there were people in the world determined to blow up one of our cities and kill thousands of innocent people. Let's not forget that they'd cut your head off if you disagree with them, too.
On top of that, he was a great actor.
Thomas Lifson has a great post about Silver.
Rick Moran looks back at Silver's political activism.
In fact, Silver did not change. He was always a liberal on social issues.
Silver understood that the terrorists were opposed to everything that liberals believed in, from women's rights to any kind of tolerance.
Silver concluded that you couldn't do business with people who think that we should live under some kind of 12th century justice.
Rest in peace Ron Silver! It's a shame that there aren't more people like Ron Silver in Hollywood!
