Walter Cronkite Dies at the age of 92.

I am old enough to remember watching him do the news.

Walter was there with America, he told us the news, and was a solid presence on TV for us through the dark days of Vietnam, and the Kennedy assassination. (yes, I was only 4, but I still remember him on teh TV coverage.) Through teh moon landings we're now celebrating 40 years ago. Watergate, resignations, elections, disasters, and even the odd good news. His calm voice told us that, now matter how bad, or good, "That's the way it is."

Rest in Peace, Walter.


And Shifty, well done, faithful warrior. May you Rest in Peace, too.
