Points to ponder...

... when not worrying how Paris Hilton will survive doing time in the slammer.
  • Has anyone asked Bernie McGuirk how he feels about sharing the airwaves with convicted felon Tom Finneran? And just how many sides does George Regan have to his mouth? And why did the Globe rollback of a Page One story on the WRKO publicity stunt run on the obits pages? Stay in New York Bernie, and take George with you.
  • Is there another human being on the planet, aside from George Bush, who thinks Alberto Gonzales is qualified to do anything aside from breathing?
  • Anyone else as depressed as I was after watching the tribute to Walter Cronkite's 90th birthday? Aside from the sorry reflection on the state of journalism (hello again Paris!), it was sobering to recall all the turmoil of the '60s -- and how little we have learned. Take Cronkite's reporting from Vietnam, substitute Iraq and who would know?

I think you are right. It seems that we haven't learned much since the 60's. But, I've enjoyed the coverage of Walter Cronkite. It brings back many memories of my youth. Some good, some bad. Walter Cronkite was the voice of my youth. I remember the day Kennedy was assasinated, and for the next four days Cronkite was a fixture in my family's liviing room. I'm looking forward to the tribute tonight. I still miss his newscasts. Nobody has matched his presence. Here's a really nice piece that aired earlier, http://www.thenewsroom.com/details/315759/Entertainment?c=20191
