Paul Newman explained why he set up the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for seriously sick kids:
"I wanted, I think, to acknowledge Luck: the chance of it, the benevolence of it in my life, and the brutality of it in the lives of others; made especially savage for children because they may not be allowed the good fortune of a lifetime to correct it."
(Thanks to Dahlia Lithwick for her moving obituary of a good man.)Posted by richard at September 28, 2008 1:44 PM
