Peter Jennings

I can’t let today go without posting a link to the Washington Post obituary for Peter Jennings. He was always mother’s favorite as she had the pleasure of meeting him at a United Nations dinner over 30 years ago. I just talked to her on the phone and she was still gushing over how handsome he was and the nicest and most genuine person she’d ever met from that circle.
I don’t know where I’ve been–I had no idea he had even gone public with his illness in April or that he wasn’t even on the air any more. So when I heard this news late last night, I was deeply saddened. I happened to find a retrospective on ABC minutes later which is available here.
