One of the few celebrity deaths that actually make me sad.

I grew up watching Peter Jennings and I thought he was a wonderful reporter.

Make he rest in peace.

I just saw that on CNN.com. Truly sad, he was a great reporter and a credit to his industry.

I haven't watched the evening news in years, but when I was growing up Dan Rather was always on in my house so I never saw much of Jennings. Looking back on what he did, though, being someone in America for 40 years is no small feat. All without even a high school diploma.

I hope his cause of death helps a lot of people reconsider smoking.

Peter Jennings started smoking when he was 11 and he smoked until he was about 50 and then he started again. That **** will take its toll. It's no surprise he got lung cancer, which is virtually incurable when detected late, like it was with him.

I guess this should give people like me a hint, but some of us will never learn. ..
