Paul Newman, Fighter!

Word came out yesterday that Paul Newman is in the fight of his life:
On Wednesday, a longtime neighbor and business partner confirmed to The Associated Press that Newman told him about the disease about 18 months ago.

"It's a form of cancer and he's dealing with it," said A.E. Hotchner, a writer who partnered with Newman to start Newman's Own salad dressing company in the 1980s.

Hotchner did not specify what kind of cancer Newman had, but said the actor is in active treatment.

His resumé is extensive, but I liked him best opposite Jackie Gleason in the original Hustler. the Color of Money remake with Tom Cruise was a nice sequel, but nothing compared to the original.

I wish Paul and his family and friends my best!
