Uncle Walter

It was always comforting to hear his voice, not because the news was comforting, but because his reporting of it was not tainted by the biases of corporate sponsorships and their political agendas that spin the facts into a new animal. He was the voice of the news for us baby boomers. We learned about all the events through him -- VietNam, the assassinations... I think the most galvanizing bond is the one that formed throughout the reporting of JFK's assassination. We were moment-by-moment going through the experience, not just through him but with him.

His life should be celebrated. And that's the way it is.
