  Peter Jennings 1938-2005
I'm sure everyone has heard by now about the death of Peter Jennings from lung cancer at the age of 67. I just wanted to add my own small tribute to a great journalist and anchor. As we lose more and more of these trusted faces, I'm left to wonder who will take their place. In an age of ideological reportage, Fox News and the subordination of truth to spin, we need more than ever professional journalists who will faithfully tell the story. The landscape is a bit bleak, but I'm hopeful a new generation of Kronkites, Brinkleys, Rathers and Jennings will come to the fore.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
