What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

And that's the way it was, July eighteenth, two thousand and nine.

Walter Cronkite (1916-2009) has left the newsroom.

He was the gateway drug to the news for me. In my library I only own four biographies, his is one.

Okay, you've piqued my interest. What are the other three biographies?

John Adams by David McCullough
Freedom in Exile, His Holiness the Dalai Lama
On Writing by Stephen King (which is more autobiography than writer's manual))

I also have books on various historical Buddhas, but those are more religious tracts.
