Co-worker remembers Cronkite

It's hard to imagine walter cronkite as a young, up-and-coming journalist.

But that's exactly how Len Gumley remembers him. He is the former manager of CBS News studios in New York.

He shared his memories with Fredricka Whitfield on Sunday.

    If Dan Rather paid more attention to the way Walter done things he would still have his job confirmation is a good thing Dan.

    I think this healthcare issue is being rushed through too fast; show down, think it out, come up with some really great ideas!

    Now is the time to stop letting illegal aliens and refugees–everyone who is not an american citizen from accessing entitlements paid for with taxpayer dollars. Giving refugees $10,000 per family member, letting them access housing, foodstamps, eduction, buying them cars, etc has to end–NOW!!! If non-americans want to access healthcare, they have to pay in advance–no more free ride courtesy the american taxpayer. all of the aforementioned would save a large amount of money.

    Watched a right wing talker on CNN's Money segment yesterday stating that a tax on the wealthy will stifle wealth creation. The fact is that stagnant and decreasing wages for workers over the past 2 decades are largely due to rising health care costs. Businesses give meager raises due to their rising health care costs and the workers' premiums go up and eat up any small increase they may have seen. Not likely many of us will create much wealth if this continues. Workers are not free to leave their jobs for one with greater opportunities at small startup companies if they would lose their health insurance. We are also not free to start our own small business as the cost of private health insurance is prohibitive. The fear of losing our health care benefits is the number one deterrent to innovation in the middle class. How many are staying in dead end jobs wishing for greater things but afraid to give up our health care packages? If we want to see more entrepreneurship we need to take the burden of the astronomical increases in health care costs out of the equation. What could an American people not burdened with this horrible system do? Kind of fires the imagination, huh?

    Thank God for the Blue Dog Democrats. They are the real voice of most of the democratic voters, not the socialist democrats that are running things now, Pelosi, Reid, and Obama.
