The news just came over the wires that he died from lung cancer. Feh. I liked Jennings. Why couldn't it have been someone more useless, like, say Dan Rather. Oh well. Apparently he took up smoking again after quitting 20 years ago after 9/11. Jennings was also inspired to change his citizenship to the US finally after the event and got a perfect score on his citizenship test. He was only 67 when he died and I had looked forward to seeing him on the various news shows for years to come.
