Goodbye Paul Newman

Paul Newman has finally succumbed to his battle with cancer. Although it's been known for weeks that he was not long for this world, it still brings me great sadness to think that we can longer enjoy any new work. Aside from being a great actor, he was truly a classy human being. His work in charity speaks volumes as to the nature of his heart.

Ah--forgot about his work in "The Hudsucker Proxy." Great performance. I might have to check that movie again sometime soon.

Definitely a class act. Not bad with the tomato sauce either.
