Default Walter Cronkite dead at 92

Looks like we lost another one today. Must have just happened because I can not find an actual story and it is listed as breaking news on MSNBC.

The People's Republic of Vietnam will miss him. He was their biggest fan.

No offense or anything but 92 is ****ing old. I can understand that, its the others (Mike, Billy, Farrah, etc) that die so much younger that really grab headlines.

Regardless RIP Walter.

As a person who remembers him doing news broadcasts (in black and white too!) he had a certain folksy yet proffesional way of reporting that made you feel at ease in even the worst times. RIP old friend.
