R.I.P., Paul Newman

27 September 2008

Sorry for the depressing trend of entries, but people seem to keep dying. They should stop doing that.

Paul Newman, movie star, race car driver, food & charity figure, 83 dies of lung cancer.

My roommate’s reaction: “What? Oh no! He made really good salad dressings.”

In truth I don’t think I’ve seen any of his movies beyond The Hudsucker Proxy, but I’ve always felt a strong fondness for his second life as a humanitarian, selling tasty, organic packaged snack foods (Newman’s Own) and condiments and donating the profits to charity. You will be missed.
