Somehow, when his diagnosis was announced in the first place, I didn't realize that his condition was considered terminal. So, when I heard on Fox yesterday morning that he was "gravely ill," I was a little surprised. My whole family thought I was totally clueless. Can't believe he's gone. Now all 3 major networks have lost their evening news anchors in less than a year. And only one was under good circumstances.

Yeah, no kidding! Rather technically got a celebratory send-off, but his record was tarnished by the recent scandal over Bush's service record and he was basically forced out. Poor Jennings thought he was going to have the time slot to himself for a while, then this happens. Very sad. RIP, PJ.
