Paul Newman: Rest In Peace

There's much to be said about the man.  And there's so much more we will hear over time as many mourn his passing and celebrate his life.  One quote I shall always remember attributed to him was something from long ago.  Playboy was interviewing Newman, and asked about the allure and temptations of Hollywood to draw spouses to stray from being faithful to their mates. 

He said in reply, "I have steak at home.  Why would I go out for hamburger?"  

The marriage of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward is one of those shining examples of Hollywood royalty.  I'm sorry for her and their five children.  But by all accounts, Paul Newman lived a good, full and purposeful life.  May it be likewise for all of us as well.
