House passes resolution to honor actor Paul Newman

I love Paul Newman. His humanitarian efforts, his movies, his out of this world pasta sauces, salad dressings, popcorn  etc…The man was incredible for his consistent devotion to humanity.  My question. With the current situation of the United States of America is this something the House of Representatives should even be fucking discussing?

WASHINGTON – Paul Newman, the late actor and 10-time Academy Award nominee, has been honored by lawmakers as a screen legend and humanitarian.

Newman died Sept. 26, 2008, at age 83 after a long battle with cancer. The House on Tuesday night approved a resolution recognizing Newman’s achievements on and off screen.

The resolution said Newman’s “humanitarian works and incomparable talents have made him an American icon who will never be forgotten.”

The Hollywood star won one Oscar and took home two honorary ones, and had major roles in more than 50 motion pictures, including “Cool Hand Luke,” “Exodus,” “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “The Verdict,” “The Sting” and “Absence of Malice.”

Newman and his popular food company, Newman’s Own, have given more than $250 million to charity over the years. He also helped to start “Hole in the Wall” camps across the world for children with life-threatening illnesses.

The resolution is H.R.18.

  1. I am guessing that is a rhetorical question 🙂 Of course this shouldn’t be on the table, but they are a bunch of fools, obviously.
