Peter Jennings passes away.....

I just saw on TV that Peter Jennings died.

http://abcnews.go.com/

That's so sad....he was a good news anchor and a good guy.

i was hoping to beat everyone else to it...

peter 7ennings was by far my favourite anchorman in the us media.

i grew up watching abc world news tonite at 5:30 local time, and it hasn't been the same since he announced in april that he had cancer.

indeed, a very sad story. i'd never have guessed he was 67 years old.

To think he started out hosting the Miss Canada pageants.

Respect for Mr. Jennings.

He made a career out of integrity.

He sure didn't look 67. Much too young to die. I'm very sad about this. I was hoping he'd be back on the air soon.

Peter Jennings will be missed.

Friends, cigarettes lead to lung cancer.

Lung cancer kills.....please, STOP NOW!

Very shocked and surprised to hear this news. He was definitely one of the most "comforting" journalists out there.

Comforting is the perfect word to describe Peter Jennings. He was a very comforting presence after 9/11.

So true, that's what came into my head as well. As horrible as the news was, you felt better with him there.

Why did I put it in quotations? I shouldn't type when I'm sick.
