In case you live under a rock you’d know that Walter Cronkite died late last week. He was that "Voice of God" newsman on the television. It wasn’t news unless it came from him. JFK wasn’t dead until it came from him.
The rise of TV and mix in the baby boomer generation and you see how his death can stir up a bunch of emotions among the boomers.
Ask anyone one of the baby boom generation where they were when they found out JFK was killed and they know.
On the one hand I’m impressed by that and on the other I’m a little unnerved. I guess it will be same for people of my era when it’s the 40th anniversary of 9/11. However I doubt we’ll remember the newcasters and I’m ok with that.
