A True Loss During the

A True Loss
During the Sixies when I was growing up in NYC we watched the evening news every night, we watched channel 4, we watched Huntley and Brinkley.
I grew up with David Brinkley and he has always been the TV person I have most respected. I never spent much time watching Sunday morning shows until he started This Week.
He was at his best during the numerous Conventions and Elections that he covered better than anyone since.
I love this quote.

One favorite topic was an announcement by the IRS on how they planned to collect taxes in the wake of a nuclear war.

"It says in areas of the country hardest hit, delinquent taxpayers will be given a little extra time. Otherwise, taxes will be collected as usual," he said.

RIP David Brinkley
