see ya, Butch Cassidy

The Sting (in the movie theater) and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (in revival at the drive-in) were my first exposure to Paul Newman and his baby blues when I was a kid.

I have to admit, he was more my mother's crush - I fell hard for Robert Redford. But Newman always was understood to be great in our house of movie buffs. My dad let us watch Cool Hand Luke on TV. And my daughter will get to know him as the voice of Doc in Cars.

I love Newman's Own ginger cream cookies. Amazing. Not to mention the charity behind the brand.

What else can I say? A great guy, who will be missed.
