Rest in peace, Walter Cronkite

Anchor Walter Cronkite has passed away.

A little cruel that he didn't make it to the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. He was long tied to the Apollo missions; probably he was heard by the most people in my generation when he narrated the beginning and end of the film Apollo 13 (and of course appeared in archival footage), but I do remember Cronkite's last years as a CBS News anchor. (He debated with his producers back in 1977 over whether The CBS Evening News should lead with the death of Elvis.)

I kind of wanted to do a play on "You, Are, There," but nothing's working. ("He, Aren't, There"?)

Rest in peace, sir.
