    He's 80 years old and he recently had a battle with lung cancer....I doubt he was planning on investing on a 401k plan.....

    He has given every cent beyond expenses from his company, Newman's Own, to charity since 1982. For a sum of 200 million or so.

    Added to that is that he gave away his company 2 years ago and we're just hearing about it now.

    Exactly, Paul has always been generous.

    He is one of a kind...at least we have the likes of Paris Hilton...

    I think that is awesome, but it's all relative.

    One half of you was drunk and passed out. The other half was taking advantage of the other. Lee loves to use the Strap-on on you when you pass out Mino
