Fast Eddie Gone
Today it was announced that Paul Newman passed away at age 83. What a great actor. Hard to believe he didn't garner more Oscars. Newman was a flaming liberal. He was so liberal that he ended up on Nixon's "enemies list", an honor of which he was most proud. But there's one thing about him that stood out to me. That was his generosity. Unlike some libs I know, Newman spent his own money on his charitable causes. His "Newman's Own" food products are common place. We use some of them on the Marshall Art estate. All the profits went to charity and reports are that this one venture resulted in donations of more than $175 million. He also established camps for kids with cancer in several states and Europe. That's a man who gave, and he gave directly. May he rest in God's Peace.
