    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...
