By now, you all should know of the death of Peter Jennings, the ABC News anchor who had been battling lung cancer.
I'll have an extended tribute to him in tomorrow's Beacon Journal. It is online at www.ohio.com.
In brief, I didn't know him, but what I did know, I liked. Jennings seemed unendingly enthusiastic about his job and the world at large. He was also obviously an optimist, even when life gave him reasons for pessimism. If there's a lesson to be learned from him, that's it.
ABC will air a special about Jennings at 8 p.m. Wednesday.
