Paul Newman's lesser-known legacy
Straight Goods

Newman and millions of average Americans also said no to the unnecessary and unwise utilization of US military force in Panama (1989), Somalia (1993-94), Iraq and Iran (as press and pundits ironically debate whether we can save the world from Iranian irrationality by nuking that nation). Paul opposed NATO expansion, supported past and current efforts to clean up the huge toxic legacy (including chemical and nuclear wastes sometimes boxed in cardboard and dumped into local landfills) at thousands of military and Department of Energy sites located throughout our nation, and argued for many other checks on the damaging Bush Administrations neo-conservative perspective that has today made America a feared and somewhat isolated player on the world stage.
