a lengend passes: paul newman.

paul newman was my high school crush. i watched cat on a hot tin roof when i was 14 and quickly fell madly in love with him. he was a wonderful actor, family man, philanthropist and entrepreneur. he was all for 'shameless exploitation in pursuit of the common good'. on friday evening, he died at this longtime home, of complications arising from lung cancer.

he was 83.

I hate to quote wikipedia but on top of his amazing contributions to charity, here's something i found very noble, "Newman was also a vocal supporter of gay rights and, in particular, same-sex marriage." For someone of his generation this is an extremely progressive standpoint.

What an amazing man.
