Very sad to read this. If all of us could have a legacy like Marion Dewar the world would be a much better place.

Geez, last night I tried staying up to watch [i]The Sting[/i], one of my favourite movies. Then I heard this morning that Newman, one of my favourite actors, has died.

I just found out that jazz musician and writer,

I'll always be indebted to the author of [i]Bix: Man and Legend[/i] and [i]Lost Chords[/i]

Gee quelar, I didn't realize it had gotten so awful. Maybe at the rabble relaunch party we could do a fundraiser of some kind. Perhaps a 50/50 draw, or at least set up a jar for donations.

[url=http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20081019.wweider1020/... Weider[/url], 85 years old, a colourful life-story and well-known around Montrйal.

quote:

He was a school dropout from Montreal who took bodybuilding out of sweat-soaked gyms and helped usher in the modern-day fitness boom – and rubbed shoulders with the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ronald Reagan and Saddam Hussein in the process. ...

Mr. Weider saw bodybuilding as a way to bridge divides. At a bodybuilding meet in apartheid-era South Africa in 1975, he threatened to cancel the competition if black and white athletes were not allowed to stay in the same accommodations.

His passion took him to places like China and the Soviet Union during the Cold War, as well as Iraq, and once – on the same trip – to Tel Aviv and Ramallah; he dedicated two gyms and managed to meet separately with both Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and the mayor of Tel Aviv.

Today, Mr. Weider may be one of the few Canadians to have received the tributes of the Order of Canada and an honorary degree from Baghdad University.

Overcoming a childhood of poverty and episodes of anti-Semitism, Mr. Weider devoted himself to wide-ranging philanthropy. One of his last acts of giving was a second free gym in September to Palestinians in Ramallah on the West Bank, one of a multitude donated around the world. He also gave discreetly, helping the Catholic Church in Montreal restore its downtown Mary Queen of the World Cathedral.

Despite Mr. Weider's wealth, his favourite restaurant was Montreal's homey Snowdon Deli, where he frequently had a bagel and coffee for breakfast and knew the waitresses by name.
