God Speed Walter Kronkite

Please allow me to veer away from horse racing to recognize a man who set the standard for everyone in my generation of journalists.

"At every turn, he acted as if he had a responsibility to his audience. He didn't do the right thing because he thought it would help him get ahead and then one day he'd get his share. Instead, he always did the right thing because that's who he was. No sellouts, no political consulting, no false transparency.

That's the way it is.

Transparency works if it's authentic."
-Seth Godin
