John Fund on Ron Silver
Actor and liberal-turned-conservative activist Ron Silver knew how to live -- and also how to deal courageously with the cancer that claimed his life yesterday at age 62. . . . . Ron Silver was not only a gifted actor but a brave man, who admitted that he lost jobs in Hollywood after becoming a conservative. But he told me that many Americans had given up far more to stand up for what they believed in, and he had no regrets. He will be missed.
