So Long, Mr. Jennings
Peter Jennings has passed away, a scant four months after announcing his lung cancer.
I still disagree with his politics. However, he acknowledged the role of religious faith in people’s lives, and sought to make it understandable to the consumers of mass-media. Any time Tom Brokaw or Dan Rather talked about Christianity, it was with a snide tone of condescension. I never picked up any of that from Peter Jennings.
Mr. Jennings, if this was simply something to be studied before, I hope you have adopted it now.
