Peter Jennings Signs Off

ABC Newsman Peter Jennings passed away yesterday from lung cancer.

Not a particular fan of network news, but I thought Jennings made more of an attempt to be balanced than his competitors Dan Rather and Tom Brokaw.

In particular, I thought his coverage of 9/11 was noteworthy, not only for it's content but for his constitution. NPR reported this morning that Jennings was on-air pretty much non-stop for four days.

Best wishes and prayers for his family.
