    Dang. I would rather he get healthy and leave the airwaves in shame like Rather. I hope strongly that he is able to battle this into submission and continue in his work.

    Compassion for a guy, of whatever social/political agenda, is acceptable.

    I hate how he transformed into a Rather clone but he had one shining moment back in the early 90's
    remember Clinton's darkest days over Bosnia... when the Europeans were useless, bickering over who should cave in to Milosevic first, when the UN had peacekeepers watching massacres daily, hell, when the damn peacekeepers were being taken hostage by the serbs and paraded on TV and Slick Willy was dithering over what to do (remember Warren Christopher?)

    After an especially harsh day in Bosnia, where Serb snipers killed children, lobbed mortar shells into a crowded market and slaughtered an entire village, Jennings goes off on the air

    "another day of fierce Serb aggression, dozens dead, hundreds wounded, and no one did a damn thing to stop them!"

    For a kid growing up, with parents in the Army bitterly wondering why the facism their fathers fought in WW2 was being allowed to reappear in all of its nastiness in Europe and lamenting the plight of the bosnians, it was a formative moment and I respect Jennings even to this day for doing it.

    Peter Jennings bout with cancer may just be Gods will to wake up those who say one thing then do another...You cannot have it both ways in the ultimate Judge of life! As my grandaughter told me the other day...Life is a report card to God..you either pass or fail...Gotta love the young they have not lost the contact to God...only us the lost old farts who are more concerned about our potfolios! :bangheads

    This is a truly reprehensible remark. What kind of man says "good times" in response to the suffering of another? You need some serious therapy Cp.
