And THAT’S the way it is...

Uncle Walter Cronkite dead today at 92. I remember watching That Vietnam Show on TV as a kid, and how people respected and trusted this somber, serious man and the few like him (Edward R. Murrow comes to mind). I raise an Irish toast, “Here’s to us...who’s like us?...damn few...and they’re all dead.” R.I.P.

Odd little bit of trivia, Cronkite was once in a play with Eli Wallach and Ann Sheridan, who were his college classmates at UT Austin.
