R.I.P. Walter Cronkite

Walter Cronkite, dead at 92 years old.

The video I'm posting is a real downer, so I'd like to remind everyone that Walter Cronkite had an awesome sense of humor. When asked how he'd like to spend his final moments, he replied, "Like Errol Flynn--on a 60 foot yacht with a 16 year old mistress." His wife, sitting next to him, said, "You'll probably die on a 16 foot boat with a 60 year old mistress."

Walter Cronkite would have loved being on The Daily Show, I'm guessing. But he was also the definition of what a TV news anchor should be.
