    No offense to the late Peter Jennings, but I think I have already seen enough of him this week on Good Morning America to last a long long time.

    I am sorry that his family is suffering a loss, and he surely died young, but... this was he not just a news anchor and former reporter? This is a personal loss for his friends and family, not a national loss of horrible import. I don't get the fuss.

    They do seem to be overdoing it a bit now. Even Peter Jennings would agree.

    It is national news certainly, to the extent that he was a reporter of the national news...

    But, for as much as I empathise for his family and friends... I am always baffled by how press anyone "famous" who dies gets outside friends and family.

    I am never happy to hear someone dies... but when it is not a close friend or relative, or at least someone I work with... I really don't get a sense of loss the same as I would if it was someone I knew well.
