Another one bites the dust

Why are so many famous people dying this summer? Next on the chopping block is legendary news anchor Walter Cronkite, 92. Like Robert MacNamara before him, at least Walt was old and wasn't surrounded by scandals involving the molestation of children, or shot/stabbed by a girlfriend. I don't think we can handle one more of those.

Our only question is, who's going to do the voice of the Owl at the Bohemian Club now?

RIP, Walter. Thank you for the many years of narrating the most tumultuous times our country had seen. May you give Saint Pete the news story of the ages up there, big guy.
