Walter Cronkite, R.I.P

From the New York Times

It may seem strange to you that someone growing up in Norway would care a great deal about this, since his heyday was way before we had access to American TV, but even long before I started my North American studies Cronkite's voice and image was linked to several of the most notable events in US history (no doubt through documentaries aired over here) - I rarely think or read about the assasination of JFK, say, without picturung Cronkite announcing it on TV.
