This summer is getting a bit ridiculous: Ed, Farrah, Michael, Karl Malden, and now... Uncle Walter.
Walter Cronkite, respected CBS anchor for many years, passed away yesterday at the age of 92. I watched so much Cronkite as a kid, especially during all those space launches, which so inspired me.
I actually met this gentleman at a Broadway play some years ago; he was, in fact, a great fan of New York theatre. It was during intermission... when several hundred people descend on the restrooms simultaneously, and Mr. Cronkite and I both exited the restroom at the same time, and practically walked into one another. When I realized who it was, I simply extended my hand, told him what a fan I was, and he was most gracious.
Not to mention Billy Mays.
Seriously, I liked Cronkite but isn't there something better about having more media outlets and knowing (more or less) where Rather, O'Reilly, etc. are coming from?

It's so sad. I think he set a high standard for unbiased journalism that is basically ignored by most in the business.
