It occurs to me, now that Hewitt has passed on, that the only people
left from the first flowering of CBS television news may be Mike
Wallace, Morley Safer, Andy Rooney, and Roger Mudd.  Cronkite, Hewitt,
Reasoner, Friendly, Murrow, even executives like Paley, Salant, and
Stanton, all gone.  (Bob Schieffer didn't join CBS until 1969; the
late Ed Bradley didn't start doing television until the 1970s.)
