On March 6, 1981, CBS Evening News anchor Walter Cronkite
(above) signed off with his trademark valediction, "And that’s
the way it is, " for the final time. Over the previous 19 years,
Cronkite had

"the most trusted man in America,
" a steady presence during two decades of social and political
upheaval.
