RIP Walter Cronkite
Legendary journalist Walter Cronkite passed away at age 92 on Friday. He is the last great link to honest, no nonsense journalism-not like the glitz and glamour cable news of today. I had the opportunity to see in person and he was a great speaker and engaging with the audience. He was more of an influence on me and America than a lot of the previous celebrity deaths that have gotten more coverage. My thoughts are with the family and all his followers through the years that enjoyed listening to him.
