Walter Cronkite Passes at 92...
Anyone older than 45 remembers Walter Cronkite almost as a family member -- a wise uncle. Those of you who never knew him have truly missed out.
I'm sad to hear of his passing, but know that his legacy as a "newsman's newsman" is secure. Everyone in the news business today owes something to Cronkite, and few will ever approach, let alone match, the reputation he developed across the decades.
For many of us, he was the "face of history" during our entire upbringings. From "You Are There" to the CBS Evening News, he was a compass and guide. His reputation is sterling.
