black and white tiki

sad news...

Peter Jennings died late Sunday of lung cancer...he was 67.

In my opinion, he was the last elder statesman of news broadcasting, and true journalism. With him passes the legacy of the great newscasters, those with knowledge and curiosity and integrity. All we're left with now are vacuous talking heads and pretty faces hired for their skill of reading off a TelePrompTer.

Good night, Peter.
