Goodbye Dan

As an honor for everything Dan Rather has done through the years, I will leave this post up top, until I post again.

Dan Rather ended an era at CBS News on Wednesday night by signing off as Evening News anchor with a familiar message: "Courage." Video and Story Here

Rather, who spent 24 years in the anchor chair, closed the news program with these words: "To our soldiers in dangerous places. To those who have endured the tsunami and to all who have suffered natural disasters, and who must find the will to rebuild. To the oppressed and to those whose lot it is to struggle, in financial hardship or in failing health. To my fellow journalists in places where reporting the truth means risking all. And to each of you: 'Courage.'"
