R.I.P. Paul Newman

  1. Indeed- a class act. :(
     
  2. RIP.

    I'll always remember him in the pits at Limerock working on the cars and chatting with the fans. He always had time to talk with everyone. A cool guy he was :(
     
  3. Even though he was 83, he kept active and working even up until recently (2007) so its kind of shocking to hear he's gone.
    I hope TCM shows some of his movies this weekend.

    I just saw this. We kind of knew it was coming, but it's still a terrible loss, nonetheless.

    When I saw the headline this morning it hit like an old friend was gone. It is such a rare thing that someone can connect with you that deeply and yet you've never even met. What a big man, bigger than fame.

    I had a feeling it would come around this soon, with all the stories of his deteriorating health.
    Rest in Peace bro.

    I need to watch Butch Cassidy and Cool Hand Luke soon in his honor.

    He was a truly great person by all accounts. I have always admired his personality, humor, generosity, and talents.
