Paul Newman, R.I.P.

Many of my fellow right-wingers have looked askance at the late actor Paul Newman's political and social views and activities.

Whatever else might be said about Paul Newman, it must be noted that a significant amount of his charitable largesse was directed to the Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum, and to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. You really cannot get much more patriotic and pro-American than the Interpid!

Paul had his own ideas of what was right, and he acted upon them.

Rest in peace, Paul Newman!

[And, as I write this post, the Interpid is in the process of being towed back to its berth at Pier 86, at 12th Avenue and 46th Street in Manhattan, after a refurbishing in drydock. My own family membership in the museum has been in lapse for the past few years, but perhaps now is the time for us to reactivate it.]
