And his non profit company Newman's Own will go on.....
Already having donated over 250 million dollars to charities throughout the world.

The link is a temporary link that Newman's Own set up due to heavy traffic on their normal website.......
There is a good video clip from Paul on it.

This is very sad day indeed. One of my favorite actors. What a loss. At least we can still enjoy his movies, so his legacy will live on, in more ways than one.

It's a quote from 'Cool Hand Luke'......starring Paul Newman
That particular quote was not first spoken by Newman, although his character Luke repeats it later in the film.

Here is the entire quote:

What we've got here is failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach, so you get what we had here last week which is the way he wants it. Well, he gets it. And I don't like it any more than you men.

The captain isn't the only one who utters the words. Later in the movie, the main character, Luke (Paul Newman), still cocky despite being cornered by prison guards, openly mocks the Captain with the famous line.

Paul Newman was the essence of “cool” before being “cool” was even defined. My 2nd favorite actor, we have lost a great man today.
