The Rest is Respectful Silence .....

Walter Cronkite, the premier TV anchorman of the U.S. networks’ golden age who reported a tumultuous time with reassuring authority and came to be called “the most trusted man in America,” died Friday. He was 92.

"The most trusted" to the general public, and among "the most emulated" within the industry. This was someone so many of us aspired to be ... to bring to the camera - or the printed page - his knowledge, his experience, his command of the language, and his presentation. And while so many of us - myself included - never even came close, that aspiration made us better journalists, and better people, nonetheless.

I loved Walter Cronkite.

Janie, he WAS one if the good guys. When we recall where we were, and what we were doing on an historic date, those memories will include Cronkite's voice on the television.

So, how was Colorado? On another note ... are you still on course for daily posts over thirty days?

Colorado was WAY cooler than here! I am still on course, are you proud of me? I hope I can finish it!

Also...I'm giving away some James Taylor tickets - in his home town of Lenox, Mass...

August 29th is the date of the concert....the contest is Monday!

Janie, very proud ... keep up the good work!

I would love to go to Lennoz - a beautiful part of the country - but the timing's just not right. How about Jim at Serotoninrain, just a few hours' drive from Massachusetts?
