"And that's the way it is" was Walter Cronkite's sign off phrase when he was with CBS News until 1981.
At this moment in history, President Barrack Obama is speaking to students at the Moscow New Economic School. Saturday Night Live Founding Writer Al Franken is being sworn into the United States Senate to begin his six year term and the remains of Michael Jackson is stopping traffic in Los Angeles, California.
One wonders if the circus known as the Michael Jackson Memorial would have been the number one story when Walter Cronkite was news director for CBS News.
