Finally an American Liberal who keeps his word! (Hat tip: The Corner)
With NBC’s “The West Wing” ending its run, actor Martin Sheen is trading his TV role as U.S. president for that of a real-life Irish college student. The National University of Ireland in Galway says Sheen will study English literature, philosophy and theology with special interest in oceanography, the BBC reported Wednesday. Sheen, 65, has several honorary degrees but has been quoted as lamenting his lack of a “proper” education, the BBC said. Actress Angelica Huston is a patron of the National University of Ireland’s Huston School of film and digital media, the BBC noted.
Alec Baldwin and Robert Altman have been threatening for years to leave since the Bush 2000 election. At least President Bartlett followed through.
