Peter Jennings

Did you see that Peter Jennings was diagnosed with lung cancer? That really bums me out.

Given my educational background, I'm obviously a news junkie. Of the three major networks, I've always liked ABCnews the best because I think it tends to be a little more fair and they generally (with exceptions, of course) have a higher standard for what is considered newsworthy. During the 9/11 disaster I think their coverage was easily the best, and a lot of that had to do with Peter Jennings. God bless him for trying to make sense of the chaos.

I know that lung cancer does generally not have a very good prognosis, and that's a wholly depressing thing. It's not like I know the guy, but he's been coming into my living room for two-thirds of my life now. I have a lot of respect for him.

Peter definitely is the man. He seems like a strong guy that will be able to come out on top. Hopefully that just isn't my optimistic attitude talking.

Like you "really" care about other people sha-right!
