Paul Newman (1925-2008)

Paul Newman died yesterday after a long battle with cancer. We remember him as an actor, activist, race car driver, humanitarian, and founder of Newman's Own – a line of food products that has raised over $250 million for charity.

Take some paper, take some glue,
Build a plane of balsa.
It won’t go as fast as you
Can go on Newman’s Salsa.

This slogan is from the label of Newman’s Own Salsa. It also appeared on a promotional item, a Guillows type balsa glider. These four lines remind us of Newman’s sense of humor and his passion for racing.

We'll miss you, Paul.
