Paul Newman is dead. The great man in the sky has stolen from us, once again, a refined and amazing thespian. It is heartbreaking to hear the news that at the age of 83 after a quick bout with lung-cancer Paul Newman finally succumbed to his illness and past away on September the 26th, 2008, while countless amounts of talentless actors and actresses are allowed (and encouraged) to dominate Hollywood. Even in his old age Newman was a fucking horse, a true-grit bad ass who could have easily stomped on the larynx of any opponent. He gave us The Hustler, Cool Hand Luke, The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and, perhaps most important, an amazing line of organic and delicious grocery products.
Mr. Newman, we may have never met, but you will be missed. Here’s to you, guy.
