RIP, Paul Newman

Very sad news this morning that the great Paul Newman passed away. I have always admired him as an actor, citizen, and human being. He will be missed.

Thanks to you, Streak, I introduced two classes of Wyoming students to HUD. Universally, the students really enjoyed that movie and especially Newman's performance. A sad day.

On the way home from work yesterday, I heard a small Fresh Air clip of a previous interview with Paul Newman. Was good to hear his voice, but sad nonetheless.

P.S. I ran across this NY Times article which is a good anthology of his work in film.
