A Legend vs A Pop Icon

Back from ten days in the beautiful Carolina mountains. What a great part of the country.

It's been quite a few weeks of famous people deaths. I was saddened to hear of Walter Cronkite's death. He definitely falls in that category of greatest generation "gentlemen". He did his job with class and was a true legend in evening news. Unfortunately our media only gave us two days of Cronkite coverage and we're guaranteed additional months of Michael Jackson coverage. Why we give so much coverage to the bizarre and so little to the classy.

I had a chance to watch a few segments of the 8 part series "Cronkite Remembers" today on Discovery Channel. It's a great span of history through Cronkite's eyes. Check it out.
