That was 2004, though. What

That was 2004, though. What has he said or done since? I have a real hard time with 1-day activists who suddenly go silent for years on end after endorsing a real important issue. Cynthia McKinney is another of those who seem to disappear after taking on a matter of huge import.

Well.....I'd say he was one

Well.....I'd say he was one of the first of the growing list of Celebrities that have had the courage to speak out on this issue.

If you have a problem with "1-Day Activists" as you call it... I suggest you email Mr. Begley and Cynthia McKinney rather then seeking to diminish the great courage they and others have already displayed. (Doing so would illustrate my reasoning for this very post.)

"Six Feet Under" on HBO had and still has a very large audience. And many, (myself included) had no idea that Mr. Begley is a truther.

You can find his Begley's email address here :

I know it is easy to focus on negativity, but It is just as much our duty to speak out as it is theirs.

And in the case of McKinney, I can only suggest you do some research on the overwhelming contributions she HAS made. There are many!

Could they do more? Sure!

But so could you and I.

I wish it did not take Celebrity to highlight these issues. This is simply a reality in our culture.
