This One Means Something To Me

As a kid, I think my love of news (even to this day) was created by the 2 and 1/2 minute "In The News" broadcasts that Christopher Glenn would narrate every Saturday morning in between brain dead cartoons. They would always end with something like, "I'm Christopher Glenn with The People of Skylab [or any other subject]. . . In The News." (I realize the "skylab" reference dates me terribly.) And I remember being in law school listening to KRLD when the space shuttle blew up in 1986. He was anchoring the CBS coverage of the launch when I heard him say (and I'm 99% sure of this), "There's something definitely wrong here" in the first few seconds of the tragedy. I remember picking up the phone and calling home. (Story here.)
