    Walter Cronkite was a product of a far different era.  Unlike today's bland, pretty spokesmodels reading copy from a teleprompter he was a real reporter.
    He investigated his own stories. wrote his own stories and edited his own newscasts. He stood on rooftops under fire while reporting.
    His heroic denouncement of the Vietnam War stands in sharp contrast to the cowardly cheerleading of the media in 2002.
    Walter Cronkite was, plainly and simply, what every newsman and newswoman should aspire to be.

    Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor??? HELL NO!!!
