WALTER CRONKITE 1916-2009 REST IN PEACE

Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr., considered by many to be "the most trusted man in America" has died. The announcement came from his family. Most recently 92-year-old Cronkite had been suffering from cerebrovascular disease. Walter Cronkite anchored the CBS Evening News for 19 years, from 1962-1981. He lent his iconic voice to the broadcast in 2006 when Katie Couric began anchoring the program.

This summer is insane for famous dudes dying, who do we have so far? Kronkite, Robert Strange McNamara, MJ, OxyClean dude, Fawcett(sp), Ed McMan, McNair--basically, if you've got an Irish-sounding name and your kind of famous, you might want to be careful.

Wow, another famous person to leave. Walter (referred to as "Uncle Walt") was a great man that knew how to deliver news. I wish these noobs nowadays had such skills. Prayers to Walter's family and friends. In his memory, for his fans I have collected some great sites and articles (more than 200) to know all about Walter Cronkite. If you are interested take a look at the below link

Less than a week ago I spoted the trend that famous people with last names beginning with "Mc" were gettting deaded with earie regularity, now renown author Frank McCourt catches a bad one. All I'm saying, Brian McKnight, is that you better watch your back, homie.

Oh shit! I just realized, McPoppycock! S-Dot--do us a favor, do not leave the house, keep the blowdryer away from the bathtub, if some food has been in the fridge for a long-ass time and it smells funny do not eat that, I don't care how hungry you are! And by all means, keep the autoerotic asphyxiation to the barest minimum...
