      He’s 71? I’m surprised … he looks a lot younger to me, and looks like a hell of a smart cookie to boot … probably has more in his head than half the brat pack of Hollywood.

      Which isn’t saying much.

      Of course he is smart … he was spelling words long ago on The Electric Company ;)

      He is truly a gifted actor. I was shocked to when I saw he was 71. I did not realize he was that old.

      Speedy recovery …

      What I wanted to say, and forgot to … is that, if you look at his photo, he seems to have CHARACTER.

      Of how many other people in Hollywood can the same be said?

      For that matter … of how many people in the public eye these days can that be said?

      I don’t know Morgan Freeman, and he certainly has never heard of me … but looking at his photo, I’d trust him.

      That isn’t saying much? I don’t know of anyone else in his profession of whom I’d say as much….
