“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Kung Fu was one of my favorite shows growing up.

Carradine, 72, was in Bangkok to the shoot movie "Stretch" and had been staying at the Park Nai Lert Hotel since June 2.

The actor was absent from a dinner with the film crew on June 3. The crew attempted to get a hold of him but were not successful. They assumed he was resting.

A hotel maid found Carrradine on Thursday morning in the closet of his suite. A police investigation reports the actor was hanging by a rope. Police said he was dead for at least 12 hours and found no signs of foul play.

That's a bummer.

A very troubled man with many personal demons. I remember his Pshyco role in "The Longriders". Obviously his death wish there was taken to fruition. Kill Bill 1 &2; Death Race 2000; many TV and movie roles. Many charachters, but apparently much inner turmoil.Too Bad. I too will miss his skill and his personifications.
