“But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.” - Martin Luther King, Jr

One of my earliest heroes. As much as an actor can be, but Burt had it all, looks, charm, sense of humor and acting ability for which he didnt get enough credit IMO.
Really cant describe what a huge star he was in the 70's and 80's back before films were spit out a dozen a day.
Ive said this before, but his Smokey and the Bandit was responsible for my addiction to film and wanting to re watch them over and over ad nauseam, not to mention being the catalyst for me quoting movies as an art form long before anyone knew what the hell I was talking about.
After everything I read about him, observed in his films and listened to in interviews, he was a man who believed in friendship and took care of those in his circle. Much like with Gene Wilder, Jerry Reed, Robin Williams and John Candy, I really feel loss.
RIP my man.
