Peter Jennings 1938-2005 RIP

It shoulda been Dan Blather

I haven't watched network news for years. And, frankly, when I did I thought Peter Jennings' genuinely pleasant demeanor and projection of a sympathetic personality made him the most dangerous of the Mass Media Podpeople.

But. No one who's not a mass–murdering Islamofascist subhuman monster deserves to die of lung cancer. (Though of course mass–murdering Islamofascist subhuman monsters deserve to die the death of a thousand paper cuts while suffering from every cruel disease known to man—and maybe a few as yet unknown.) No, not even those who essentially give it to themselves by lifestyle choices deserve death from lung cancer.

Sorry you had to go that way, Peter.

My sympathies to his family.

FWIW, his book, The Century, was a little less biased than his nightly broadcasts, from what little I gather from skimming it. The book at least is not a bad legacy, IMO.
