The voice of the way things were is quiet now.

For my part it is interesting that to my mom's generation, and to a lesser extent my grandparents and my genreations this man was the voice of news to an extent. There was a time when people would think to do a news caster impression this was the man they imitated. He kind of represented a time when we trusted the newsmen on tv to tell us some truth. Raise a glass to the man.


NEW YORK (Reuters) - Former CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite, whose authoritative delivery of news events from the John F. Kennedy assassination to the Apollo moon landing and Vietnam War, made him "the most trusted man in America," died on Friday at age 92.

Cronkite died in New York after an illness, CBS said. His family issued a statement weeks ago that he had been suffering for some years with cerebrovascular disease and was not expected to recuperate.

His death coincided with the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, which took the first astronauts to the moon. Cronkite was a passionate chronicler of the space program and anniversary celebrations of Apollo 11 have featured frequent rebroadcasts of his coverage of the historic moon landing.
