RIP Walter Cronkite

cronkiteNews legend Walter Cronkite died today. He was 92 and had been in failing health for awhile.

The Boston Globe has a pretty neat photo tribute to the man once called “the most trusted man in America.”

The New York Times has a good obit and an excellent video biography of Cronkite. I can’t seem to embed the video, but I attached the link. It’s toward the bottom of the page.
