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.
