President Lyndon Baines Johnson said: "If we've lost Cronkite, we've lost the country." [Back in the Sixties unconditional love in the mainstream media for (Republican) Presidents was unavailable because Fox News had not yet been born.]
Now the disk jockey will play "Alice's Restaurant Massacre," "The Ballad of the Green Beret" and "Eve of Destruction." We have to go write a tepid review of the new movie "Not Fade Away." Have a "time is on my side" type week.
