This extremely sad news tonight:

"Walter Cronkite, an iconic CBS News journalist who defined the role of anchorman for a generation of television viewers, died Friday at the age of 92, his family said."

What was the last time you heard a network TV anchor say something and knew you could believe it? For me, when this guy retired, decent network news died.
