Peter Jennings Dead

About a half hour ago, ABC broke into their programming to announce that Peter Jennings has died, ending his bout with lung cancer.

Regardless of what you thought about the man's journalism, he was one of a handful of individuals who dominated the field of TV news coverage for decades.

I'm sure there will be more than a few kind words passed on about Jennings today, but you've got to tip your hat to a man who was working as a netowrk news anchor at the age of 26, going up against the likes of Cronkite, Huntley and Brinkley.

He is a part of our pop cultural history, and he will be missed.

    It's strange... I can never think of him and not hear the Jeopardy theme...

    Give me a call, fool!
