Walter Cronkite

No need for a medical tie-in here. If you are old enough to remember Walter Cronkite, you are old enough to remember a time when facts were checked in television newscasts and every report had to be cleared by an anchor with the power to make a difference.

People believed Cronkite when he spoke because he only said things when he though they were correct and he had the facts to back it up. In his field he is a legend.
It is nothing more than a coincidence and more of a tribute to the legendary newsman, but I could not help but notice that when I was honored with the annual award of "The Voice Foundation", I noticed Walter Cronkite had received more than a decade earlier. Not much of a connection, but one I am proud of. The link to The Voice Foundation follows:
