A Long Gone Voice

"The difference between the men and the boys in politics is, and always has been, that the boys want to be something, while the men want to do something.”
the great Eric Sevareid, who'd be 99 today if he wasn't already dead.
This link will take you to his farewell from the CBS Evening News. Jeepers, that was 34 years ago. Really, I loved listening to his take on things, his way of using the language, his calm, measured voice.

Speaking of cherished voices, I woke up to Scott Simon interviewing Doris Day on NPR this morning. Oh baybee.
