So much for him insisting that he'd walk again within 5 years.

The timing of his death is quite convenient for John Kerry though, I mean Reeves was a big supporter for stem cell research.

Yeah...we really should get Kerry/Nader/Edwards to make mandatory crash helmets, roll-bars and protective Nascar type neck braces mandatory for these poor rich bastards riding their ponies in polo and dressage contests.

Just read this on the beeb. Big shocker, only 52.
I was 6 when the first Superman came out, after seeing it I really did think a man could fly...probably still got the bruises from the many times I leapt from the chest of drawers and wardrobe to the bed.
RIP

It is just so sad to hear about Christopher Reeve. He was so determined to help scientists find a solution to his and others disabilities.

Congrats, your the first person to actually use his name. Barbara Walters did a special on him this evening, quite touching.


CHRISTOPHER REEVE (1952-2004)

A true hero

Kryptonite.... That is the running culprit throughout this loss of Superman and the actors who played him
