Walter Cronkite

With the rest of the world, Delain Law Office mourns the passing of newscaster Walter Cronkite.

When I was a child, I remember listening to the news with my parents. There was Huntley/Brinkley and there was Walter Cronkite. Cronkite was my favorite, even at the tender age of 4. When I was 7, I listened to him broadcast the news of JFK’s death. When I was 12, I watched him narrate the lunar landing of Apollo 11; I was otherwise occupied by a major event in my own life at 13 when Apollo 13 had to turn around, but Cronkite was there, telling the world about what was going on with those astronauts. As an adult, I counted the days of the Iranian hostage crisis with him. He was a staple of my youth, and he will be missed by all the world. And by me.
