Walter Cronkite and the man in the moon

walterWalter Cronkite wasn't the sort of guy to be ON the news..he reported it. But I've got to say his timing was impeccable. When he passed away three days before the anniversary of the moon landing, it pretty much was a foregone conclusion that every story about the big anniversary would include at least a sidebar about Uncle Walter and his obsession with the space program. I watched a bunch of the Walter Cronkite coverage over the weekend, and I'd have to say the one thing that surprised me the most was that he was friends with Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead. Apparently he went to a Grateful Dead show years ago..and before it started he was thinking of all sorts of reasons to leave early..but by intermission he said he could think of no reason that he'd want to leave. I think it's cool that Walter was a deadhead, but for some reason can't picture him in tie dye. As for the moon landing milestone, I remember I was up north in Prentice,Wisconsin on July 20, 1969. I recall watching some of the coverage on my grandpa's ancient black and white TV, and also looking out at the moon from his yard..trying to see the astronauts.  I was 7 at the time, and pretty sure I was just hamming it up and knew I couldn't really see them. I did get to see a moon rock once when one was on loan to the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point. We took a field trip and got to see it inside a glass case. Whoop de doo. I was about impressed with that moon rock as those moon creatures were on those old commercials for Tang. This one really took me back.

WALTER CRONKITE'S JOURNALISM WAS EXCELLENT. CRONKITE LEAVES BEHIND A GOOD LEGACY. CRONKITE POSITIVELY INFLUENCED OTHERS. _____________________ SCANDALS! SCANDALS! SCANDALS! DANGER! DANGER! DANGER! GEORGE W. BUSH IS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS CRIMINAL STALKER AND SERIAL KILLER! “In her suit, Margie Schoedinger states that George W. Bush committed sexual crimes against her, organized harassment and moral pressure on her, her family members and close relatives and friends. As Schoedinger said, she was strongly recommended to keep her mouth shut. . . . Furthermore, she alleges that George Bush ordered to show pressure on her to the point, when she commits suicide” (go to Google, type “blog of drizzten Margie Schoedinger,” and hit “Enter”). “George [Bush is personally complicit] in the death (murder to be precise) of my friend Margie Schoedinger in September of 2003. Determining the exact whereabouts and contacts of . . . George Bush on September 21 thru 22, 2003, should be entirely lacking in difficulty” (Leola McConnell; go to Google, type “Leola McConnell blogspot Margie Schoedinger,” and hit “Enter”). McConnell is correct: Bush applying pressure (continuously criminally stalking Margie Schoedinger) purposefully to force Schoedinger to commit suicide does in fact constitute murder where it culminated in her death. Bush’s method of murdering Schoedinger cannot exist in a vacuum: he must have murdered other people in the same way. During Bush’s presidency, of course Bush would have desired to kill people whom he hated or get them out of his way. Insofar as Bush was clearly capable of murdering Schoedinger—even in “broad daylight”—and is clearly capable of getting away with it, in consideration of common sense and the laws of human nature, Bush of course murdered numerous people in the disgusting way he murdered Schoedinger. One can examine public information; in various situations where people who sought to oppose or disadvantage Bush ever so frighteningly ended up “committing suicide”—specifically—Bush murdered them just like he murdered Schoedinger. For example, Bush murdered James Howard Hatfield by continuously criminally stalking Hatfield to the point that Hatfield could not get away from it—purposefully to force Hatfield to commit suicide—and Hatfield committed suicide in desperation to escape. However, the vast majority of such scandalous cases will never come out (the grisly details are typically hard to substantiate). A prosecutor really can lawfully charge a former president with murdering one or more people in the disgusting way Bush murdered Schoedinger. The American people unfortunately live in a world where evil presidents can murder any number of people—figuratively—with a wave of a magic wand and get away with it. (There are thousands of copies of the information above on the Internet. Please feel free to go to any major search engine, type “GEORGE W. BUSH IS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS CRIMINAL STALKER AND SERIAL KILLER” or “George W. Bush continuously criminally stalked Margie Schoedinger to the point that she could not get away from it, and she committed suicide in desperation to escape: he murdered her” or “George W. Bush applying pressure (continuously criminally stalking Margie Schoedinger) purposefully to force Schoedinger to commit suicide does in fact constitute murder where it culminated in her death” or “George W. Bush murdered James Howard Hatfield by continuously criminally stalking Hatfield to the point that Hatfield could not get away from it—purposefully to force Hatfield to commit suicide—and Hatfield committed suicide in desperation to escape,” hit “Enter,” and readily find hundreds of copies.)

BUSH IS THE WORST PRESIDENT IN U.S. HISTORY blog of Andrew Wang,” and hit “Enter.”) _____________________ Andrew Wang (a.k.a. “THE DISSEMINATING MACHINE”) B.S., Summa Cum Laude, 1996 Messiah College, Grantham, PA Lower Merion High School, Ardmore, PA, 1993
