Oh no! Frank McCourt died today! He's the Pulitzer Prize winning author of memoirs Angela's Ashes, 'Tis, and Teacher Man. I read them all and was inspired by his teaching and writing and am sad that he's gone. He was 78.
Walter Cronkite died earlier this week on July 17 at 92. I grew up hearing the news from him and David Brinkley and Chet Huntley. If Walter Cronkite said something, I believed it. He was one of a kind.
Every week at least one more well-known person dies!
