Paul Newman.

I'm stunned that I'm not seeing this all over my friends list, so I guess I'll be the first:

Legendary actor Paul Newman dies at age 83

One of my favorite quotes from the article:
... he was so famously liberal that he ended up on President Nixon's "enemies list," one of the actor's proudest achievements, he liked to say.

Aw man ... I want to be one of Nixon's enemies!

But in all seriousness, Newman's Own is one of a very small number of organic food companies that's not quietly owned by some giant corporation. I always joked that when they finally came out with Newman's Own tampons, I would gleefully buy them by the case, just because I would be so amused. I really hope that Paul Newman's death doesn't mean that Newman's Own is going to be gobbled up by Kraft, or Monsanto, or some other evil conglomerate.

Some of us were on kid patrol, and so could not post earlier.

Newman's daughter has been very involved with the line for some time; the organics were her baby. So I hope it will go on as before.

I was saddened when I saw it online today.
