Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

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.
