An Amazing Day For Deaths ("It's People"!!)

It turns out that on this date in history a truly amazing littany of famous and/or historically important people have died over the years, including: General Douglas MacArthur (1964, at age 84), Chinese leader Chiang Kai-shek (1975, at age 87), Howard Hughes (1976, age 72), Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton (1992, age 74), beat poet Allen Ginsberg (1997, age 70), and actor Charlton Heston (2008, age 84).

Charlton Heston starred in some of my favorite films, most notably Planet of the Apes (1968). If you liked that movie, too, and are also familiar with his 1973 film Soylent Green, then you might enjoy this 1 minute  "Heston Soylent Green Mega Mix":
