The Passing of "Newman's Own" Founder, Actor Paul Newman

Paul Newman, actor, and founder of "Newman's Own", has passed away. From a statement from the foundation, included in one of the many obituaries:

"Newman's Own ... What started as something of a joke in the basement of his home, turned into a highly-respected, multi-million dollar a year food company. And true to form, he shared this good fortune by donating all the profits and royalties he earned to thousands of charities around the world, a total which now exceeds $250 million."

Here on SE, a taste test of sandwich cookies, including Newman-O's, was reported yesterday, coincidentally the same day Mr. Newman passed away.
