Christopher Reeve in his prime. That's how we will always think of him.
Our heart is breaking over the premature death of the courageous-beyond-measure Christopher Reeve. At the same time (that being said?), we are totally disgusted with the stem-cell harpies who are even now, before the body is cold, swooping down to use his death for their own political purposes. We saw a most offensive clip of Candidate Kerry speaking out the other day before Reeve's death, saying something to the effect of "I know Chris Reeve. He's a friend of mine." and then some inaccurate, Bush-bashing thing about the administration's trying to stop all stem-cell research.
Be silent. Remember the man. May he rest in peace, and may God bless all those who loved him are now suffering the ineffable pain of their loss.
