We're about to lose yet another American icon, and another fixture for us of the baby boomer and older generations.
With the first reports coming out a week ago, the family of legendary news anchor Walter Cronkite says he is not expected to recuperate from the brain disease he is suffering.
EDIT: In my thread title, I meant to say "not expected to" instead of "will not".
According to this story from upi.com and E News Online, he's at home resting comfortably with his family and a medical team.
Cronkite is 92 - once voted the "most trusted man in America" and nicknamed "America's Grandfather".
Prayers to Walter and his family.
