Don't know what else to say, feel very sad. One truly honorable journalist is gone.
Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge.
You know in his autobiography "A Reporters Life" Cronkite mentions "it was louder than the drums at a Grateful Dead concert" I always wondered how he would know that.
My kids and I met him once at Epcot it was very early in the morning on a very cold December day in 1985 and we were practically the only people in the exhibit about oil.He was being escorted by a guide and was kind enough to shake hands with my two boys and pose for a picture.
And the road goes on forever....
ps - good to see you johnman.
Here's a glimpse of the many colors of our lives. Walter Cronkite passed away today at the age of 93. Last year his friend Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead brought to him a set of drums and was teaching him how to play...at the young and tender age of 92. That's what friends are for.
gone at the young age of 92
One of my biggest regrets was never seeing the dead before jerry died.it wasn't from a lack of trying,I was simpluy to young.my good friend brent turned me on to the dead in the early 90s.I. Feel in love instantly.I knew plenty of kids in my home town(fayetteville wv)who went to dead shows but I was just to young to attend,as my parents didn't share my love with the grateful dead.I was 14 when jerry died,and my first show was in 96.I went on to do 97 further and 98 and a few phish tours with my good friend brent and have always enjoyed the scene.then in oct. Of 2000,brent was killed in a car accident in nashville tenn.he was killed instantly and the funeral followed a few days later.he was a good freind and he is still missed almost 10 years later. Jerome. I also spoke in the positive vibes section of the forum of a freind named rob who passed in 2006 from aids.he was a tour buddy to and is grteatly missed his wife is coming into town today and we will spread his ash's in the new river gorge.so to all whop lost a freind along the way let us all sing fare thee well,fare thee well,I love you more than words can tell.....
