Ron Silver: 1946-2009I always liked Ron Silver. Even if his daughter didn't know that her boyfriend's father WAS THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY!!!

I was told not to speak ill of the dead, so I just won’t say anything at all.
Okay, I’ll say this: the dude was a long-time actor, right? So why the heck was the entire obituary a celebration of his claim to be a

Uh, DavidB, you brought up his eeevil, war-mongering, neo-con ways, not Craig. If you don’t want to see politics in this blog, you’re doing a lousy job of showing it.

Enough, fellas. Feel free to talk politics all you want, but I won’t tolerate the ad hominem stuff in this space.
Thanks in advance for the cooperation which will no doubt be forthcoming.

His performance as Ron Silver, a talented actor and also a cold blooded killer in heat vision and jack was inspired.
I think it is hard to play the role of a very serious character in a comedic way. He was very good at that.

I guess the cause of death was that the same matter can’t occupy the same space?

I sat near Ron Silver at game 1 of the 2003 World Series. I appeared on national television because Fox was promoting their upcoming show “Skin” that lasted only a week or two.
LOL J. McCann.
