Ron Silver’s decision to become a 9/11 Republican a few years ago is what it is. But the poor guy’s appearance on Larry King Live a day or two ago was alarming. He looks gaunt, drained and sounded weak. I don’t know what the backstory is but I hope he’s doing well, and if he isn’t that he gets better. The Ron Silver I know and love is a bearded New Yorky-type guy with longish, swept-back hair, wearing an expensive suit and sporting a swaggery attitude.
