I was truly disappointed to hear of the passing of Peter Jennings, ABC News anchor. Here was a guy who dropped out of high school, and yet achieved tremendous success and popularity for being more learned than his peers. I loved Peter's style of being casual on screen, making it seem like he was chatting with you, one on one, rather than the traditional scripted style that Brokaw and Rather followed. But in the last couple of days since his death, I have learnt a lot about his sense of humor, his love for children, and so many issues. Peter, you lived a good life ... goodbye and we will miss you!
