Another Giant One Has Gone
Walter Cronkite died today. I'm a journalist reporter, and I try to adhere, in my little corner of the world, to the policies to which I think Cronkite adhered - observational accuracy, objectivity as far as it can be reached by humans,  intelligent compassion and the determination to get the news to we who need it - so I wish I could give him more of an epitaph than that. Perhaps it's better to direct you to (a very, very few of ) his own words. Let it rest at this: he was a good man, a fine newsman, and we need more like him.
