      During the highly politically fired years of my times at UT many of my fellow students expressed their wishes that Walter Cronkite would run for president. The Walter Kronkite Plaza is just another well deserved show of respect for his integrity and strong presence in the hearts and minds of the American public.

      Wish I could be there, since I am a Cronkite.
