the voice of American history for a while

Walter Cronkite has died. The New York Times had a good piece on this fascinating man.

Though Mr. Cronkite stopped giving us the news when I was still a baby I understand the profound loss of such a character, considering today's hail storm of media. It seems in today's world we are hit from so many different sides by so many different voices; Mr. Cronkite offered a news reporters perspective to the worlds events that were happening around him while not being afraid to show the emotion that he felt: JFK's assassination, the Vietnam War, Watergate and the first Americans landing on the news.

So, today I celebrate the passing of another interesting person.

"In seeking truth you have to get both sides of a story." ~Walter Cronkite
