If you have no memory or reference to this man, this is but one reference you should have.

I remember staying up with Walter Cronkite too see the first man on the moon. I faintly see him announcing President Kennedy's death . I saw a rerun of that , not long ago and he was quite a broadcaster..I will miss him.

Walter Cronkite was one of three major American television presences in my young life. The others were Captain Kangaroo and the Vietnam War.

Anon, one who should be emulated, I think, in contemporary terms.

sjw. Ah, the incrongruity of the time.

And so it was.

I remember thinking it was strange when the Vietnam war ended as it had been on my entire life.

sjw, thus building your sense of the world I imagine.

Boredom coupled with a growing desire to make change.

In a very different way, we may be turning that corner again...

Here's hoping!
