    There's not much news on this yet, but here is a link to the paper in his home town.

    Well that sucks, that's nearly 4 in a row, but doesn't count because we just started a new week. But damn close. Walter Cronkite is very ill and is not expected to recover. He'll be dead I bet sometime this week.

    It really hits home with all these people close to the same age as myself.....

    I will be 50 in October.

    He was seen getting off a plane that made an abrupt landing due to a flat tire yesterday at Tampa's airport. That is, according to our local news. Don't know if that may have something to do with his death.

    I just want to say, I found his commercials rather annoying, but watched his show this week Pitchmen,

    and he seemed like a really great and likable guy.

    oh man... and the last words I said about him were "Cripes that man is annoying!!"

    Sorry Billy man... Im sure they have room for a spokeman in Heaven.

    That is sad. He seemed like a genuine, likable guy.

    I will miss the voice that cut through my soul like nails on a blackboard. (I say this in tribute)

    Here is his Twitter page, it looks like he had a lot going on as well as a hip replacement tomorrow...

    And here is his son's Twitter page...

    RIP Billy

    May your family find comfort as they heal from this tragic event.

    I just turned to Fox News and it was being reported on the air. Said his wife found him unresponsive with no evidence of foul play.

    Interesting that this morning while flipping through the channels, I saw they were airing an episode of "Pitchmen" and I flipped the channel in disgust.

    I'm sure the guy was a great father and a loss now to his family, and all of that, but I am relieved that I won't be hearing his scratchy yelling on TV for much longer.
