We've got the voice of Darth Vader (and one of the best voices anywhere for that matter) on our side!!!

Black conservative ping

If you want on (or off) of my black conservative ping list, please let me know via FREEPmail. (And no, you don't have to be black to be on the list!)

Extra warning: this is a high-volume ping list.

James Earl Jones, a.k.a. "the voice of God". He has such a beautiful, deep, mellow speaking voice.

I find it interesting that of all the roles that James Earl Jones has played (including that of James Greer from the Tom Clancy novels), they had to pick Darth Vader when it came to discussing the fact that he SUPPORTS President Bush with regards to Iraq.

I may be wrong about this, but didn't JEJ do voiceovers for Rush Limbaugh early on?

A real paradox is that he is ALSO the voice that says:

THIS is CNN (love it!)

Would you believe he had a stuttering problem as a child? I read about it in Guideposts a few years ago. I don't remember how he overcame it, but he had a speech impediment.

I met him several years ago here in the DC area. He truly is a very nice man. He is married to the best friend of a former co-worker of mine.

Yeah, but imagine if our military used his voice for high-volume-level psyops programming.

Jones has a great voice. But my vote for "best voice" of all time goes to Richard Burton.

This man has the class to say it is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness--

Jesse Jackson says it is better to torch a city.

This man served in the army--

Martin Sheen was an alcoholic getting soup from the Salvation Army.

I am confirmed in my respect for this man--

He is a giant to that pygmy Danny Glover.

JAMES EARL JONES--YOU ARE THE MAN

He has (or had) a house upstate from here. I known someone from the same town, and he said Jones would drive into town in his truck wearing overalls to spend time buying stuff in the local shops.

I did not realize that James Earl Jones had a speaking impediment as a youngster! That brings to mind the notion that God allows us to have difficulties to overcome, and in doing so, we become the more blessed ... no one could deny that we as well as Mister Jones are the more blessed for his work to overcome his difficulties. Thank God for MEN like James Earl Jones, may his mellifluous voice continue to ring out and his wisdom seep into our hearts.

I bet CNN won't be playing his tag line anymore..."This is CNN"


On the matter of Mr. Jones being a classy guy, I was talking to a young kid a few years ago at the big ComicCon convention in San Diego and he talked highly of his experience seeking an autograph. THe kid had found an address for James Earl Jones and went there to ask for an autograph. Evidently he got the address right and James and his wife invited him in and gave him lunch and talked for hours and signed everything the kid had and showed him his own impressive collection of movie memoribilia. Needless to say, this is the exception rather than the norm.
