Paul Newman, Race Car Driver, 83 | Steve Parker

Even if you have a lot of other priorities for instance, sports, extracurricular activities, etc., still you need to complete a senior project to graduate successfully

Paul Newman was the real thing.

He died yesterday at age 83 in his Connecticut home (close to his home race track, Lime Rock Raceway).

Newman was said to have been suffering from lung cancer, and was for many years a heavy smoker. Still, making it to 83, smoking or not, is not bad at all.

Everyone knows about his film career and there's no lack of information on his life all over the Web. So, here I'll share a few memories, and offer a few anecdotes which some readers might appreciate knowing.
