How sad, he went pretty quickly.
I like him and Brokaw.

Rest In Peace Peter Jennings

Yeah, it is sad. He was a good reporter.

Another advertisement for folks that smoke, though. That's a painful way to go.

Yeah, that was a tough way to wake up this a.m.

I could hear it in the voices before they even stated the topic.

His was a trusted voice in a world of hype.

Brokaw's cool!! He always sounds like he's wasted! Listen carefully to him and you too will be watching closely for swaying, a red nose under the pancake makeup, or maybe the signs of a raging attack of the munchies held barely under control.

I grew up watching him. For me he was the face and voice of the national news.

It's a damn shame. The national evening news will never be the same.

Keep your one sided views in the politics and religion forum. Keep that crap out of Foo. Really, a good person died, a person who was dedicated to his job and was good at it, and you're bashing on him, tasteless, really tasteless.
