A couple of boys from Missouri
A fond farewell to Walter Cronkite. I really enjoyed some of stuff for PBS in the later years.
His famous quote that probably helped Roger Ailes with a rationale to start Fox News went something like this..."I think that being liberal, in the true sense, is being nondoctrinaire, nondogmatic, noncomitted to a cause—but examining each case on its merits. Being left of center is another thing; it's a political position. I think most newspapermen by definition have to be liberal; if they're not liberal, by my definition of it, then they can hardly be good newspapermen".
In another story, what's not to like about old timer and Kansas City native, Tom Watson being tied for the 36 hole lead in the 138th Open Championship? Cool stuff indeed.
