I just heard that Walter Cronkite passed away. Growing up - we always watched the CBS Evening News with Cronkite during supper. For a kid I didn’t have much interest in the news but I sure enjoyed listening to Cronkite’s calming voice and he reminded me of another Walter that was also from Missouri.
I guess it’s fitting that Walter Cronkite left this earth as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11. Godspeed Walter Cronkite.
