Yeah. I guess I gotta find my own way.

Lots of videos of Paul Newman around this weekend so don't feel the need to comment on this. For me personally one of my favorite Newman roles was as Brick in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof."

Sometimes these tributes to actors when they die can be a bit silly. They were just actors after all.

Not Newman. He was something more.

Sure, they can be a bit silly, but I'd much rather see thousands of tributes to an actor who actually added to the culture than the endless hagiography when a thug like Tricky Dick or Saint Ronnie finally kicks the bucket.

And boy, is that Free Sarah Palin add sexist, you sexist. Where's Hannity!

I'm not into actors and all that, but he was different. I am still having trouble accepting that he is really gone.

fran-

Yup.

:-(

randal-

He did a lot of good in the world.

As for the ad- Hannity's already all over me. He's been against sexism for almost a month now.

Pop-

My wife screamed when she read the news in the morning.

My first crush was on Paul Newman. He was a true humanitarian. How's that for a non-sequitor?
