"And that's the way it is . . . "

1917 - 2009
And that's the way it is, 17 July 2009
Thank you, Mr. Cronkite.

From a 1992 interview
"I got into a Boy Scout troop that met in an Episcopal church. The church had a wonderful minister who was also the scoutmaster. And I suppose you can say he proselytized me. At any rate, I was much involved with the church, and became Episcopalian - and an acolyte. Later, when I worked for a paper in Houston, I was church editor for a while. The Episcopal House of Bishops met in Houston one year, and I became intrigued by the leaders of the church - fascinated by their discussions and their erudition."
