Ron Silver Dead at 62

Actor and activist Ron Silver has died at the age of 62 from cancer.

Ron Silver was the best debater that this writer has ever seen. When Silver took the time to learn an issue he was unbeatable in rhetorical combat.

Ron Silver at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York, enthusiastically backing a second term for President Bush.

And speaking of, does anybody have video of that? It was very short, but one of the best speeches of the convention. All I can find is the text here.
