Walter Cronkite

Walter Cronkite passed away today at age 92. The anchor of the CBS Evening News from 1962 to 1981, Uncle Walter distinguished himself via four major events: President Kennedy's assassination; the Vietnam War, the Space Race, and Watergate. For kids today who didn't know him: people would actually sit down and watch him at 6:30 every weeknight. And people trusted him. That's all you need to know.
