**PAUL NEWMAN DEAD AT 83**

May you rest in peace, Paul. He was one of the best actors this world has ever known. Here is the just released AP flash...

WESTPORT, Conn. - Paul Newman, the Academy-Award winning superstar who personified cool as the anti-hero of such films as "Hud," "Cool Hand Luke" and "The Color of Money" — and as an activist, race car driver and popcorn impresario — has died. He was 83. Newman died Friday after a long battle with cancer at his farmhouse near Westport, CT, publicist Jeff Sanderson said. He was surrounded by his family and close friends.

Peter here...he will be missed, oh so much. You can click on the title of this post for a USA Today article/obit that is totally tremendous. Please click. I'm so sad.

That is a shame! The boy we ride for in the Pan Mass Challenge goes to the Hole in the Wall Camp. That was a wonderful thing Newman did!

YOU'RE right, Rooster. The Hole In The Wall Camp, here in CT. has our bedding...donated, of course. He did SO much good for SO many people.

Thanks...I mean that--Pete...he will be missed.
