Walter Cronkite, 1916-2009

We're a little late, but we're sad to note the passing of the great Walter Cronkite, who died yesterday at age 92. For almost 20 years, we wouldn't miss his broadcast if we could possibly help it. Among the many thoughts on his passing, we like what President Obama had to say, in part:

"He was family. He invited us to believe in him, and he never let us down. This country has lost an icon and a dear friend, and he will be truly missed."

It's a shame how far down the "mainstream media" has come from the Cronkite gold standard.
