Walter Cronkite's secret sex life


Old Walter Cronkite didn't do all that much since he retired as the face of CBS News twenty eight years ago. While the "Tiffany Network" and the credibility of its news organization slipped steadily in the years to come, Walt spent a lot of time on his boat, voiced many a documentary special and went out a lot in a tuxedo. They were well-deserved golden years. Walter's beloved wife Betsy died in 2005. She was 89 and he was 88. By the end of the year, Walt had hooked up with a hot 65 year-old who lived in his building: Joanna Simon, older sister of Carly Simon.

I'm glad his golden years were happy!

RIP, Uncle Walter.
