Paul Newman RIP

Legendary actor Paul Newman has died at the age of 83 of cancer:

Paul Newman, the legendary actor whose steely blue eyes, good-humored charm and advocacy of worthy causes made him one of the most renowned figures in American arts, has died of cancer at his home in Westport, Connecticut. He was 83. [...]

In 1982, Newman and his friend A.E. Hotchner founded Newman's Own, a food company that produced food ranging from pasta sauces to salad dressing to chocolate chip cookies.

"The embarrassing thing is that the salad dressing is outgrossing my films," Newman once wryly noted.

To date, the company -- which donates all profits to charities such as Newman's Hole in the Wall Gang camps -- has given away more than $200 million. Newman established the camp to benefit gravely ill children.

as somewhat of a youngster, i (sadly) have not seen any of his movies.. but that does not discount the sadness i felt when i heard he died yesterday. i am an avid buyer of his products (my refrigerator is stocked with like, 6 bottles of salad dressing.. lol) and in honor of him last night, i bought a pack of ginger-o's. if i'm not mistaken, he passed his product line to his daughter, who has established many products under the newman's own label herself. his legacy shall carry on, and he will definitely be missed.
