A REAL American Hero Is Dead
Not a Pop music icon, whatever that is, this time. No, a man of integrity, Walter Cronkite has passed away.
60 minutes paid tribute to him tonight in a show that was a moving monument to a fine journalist who valued the truth, not as an inconvenience, but as the objective. Not too much of that going on any more.
Considered by many the most respected man in America, he will be missed.
Unfortunately, most people will remember Michael Jackson more than Walter Cronkite for all the wrong reasons.
But Walter Cronkite was a real man of the American people.
God Bless You, Walter. May you rest in Peace.
