Walter Cronkite passed away today. Talk about an end of an era. I remember watching him on the CBS News and when he covered the Apollo moon landings. Heck, he was even covered the launch of the Space Shuttle Columbia in '81 and John Glenn's trip on the shuttle in '98.

He was the voice of the people for a long time and IMHO a man whose word you could truly take to the bank. In the era of FAUX News, the stilling of Walter's voice is all the more painful. It is very fitting he should die during the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11. His was the voice people turned to for that historic mission. He was 'one of us', the only difference being he sat in front of the camera.
