Nation mourns prospect of someday thinking for itself

New York Times

To most of us, most of the time, the news is something that happens to other people, the disembodied events of the day. It was Walter Cronkite’s job to embody them for us, to give them presence in our lives.

Ah yes. Who can forget how Uncle Walter set himself on fire, night after night, when he was reporting Tet? That was some serious "embodiment"!
