Peter Jennings has died at the age of 67

This was very sad to hear first thing this morning. He was my favorite anchor and journalist. Whenever something major was happening in the world...I went right to him to get my information. I found him to be so genuine, caring and articulate when he was discussing every aspect of the news. He will be missed.

“There are a lot of people who think our job is to reassure the public every night that their home, their community and their nation is safe,” he told author Jeff Alan. “I don’t subscribe to that at all. I subscribe to leaving people with essentially — sorry it’s a cliche — a rough draft of history. Some days it’s reassuring, some days it’s absolutely destructive.”

Reactions and some amazing photos of him here.
