    A good man enters the Kingdom Of Heaven. I pray for his family and friends who continue on without his physical presence.
    For staying true to his ideals, admiting when he was wrong, and continuing to do so much good for so many for so long, Davis is a great American figure. Its just a shame there aren't more liberal actors who could pursue their beliefs with half as much class and open-mindedness as he did.
    If you're a fan of his movies, you know of his famous performances. A great one that many forget is his role in Spike Lee's "Get On The Bus", its a powerfully acted and well fleshed out character he assumes and makes his own.
