Dan Rather's Goodbye

I got teary-eyed as I watched Dan Rather's final signoff tonight. I liked him (I still do!) and he was often the anchor of choice for us during big events (disasters, war, etc.) I liked seeing the clips of years past when he had lots of dark hair.
I don't believe that he, himself, did the research on the story about GWB. But, Dan Rather has been a legend and was my favorite when I used to have time to watch "60 Minutes." So, maybe the message of courage was simple, but I do believe it was from the heart as he uttered his signoff for the last time. It is classy to say goodbye in a simple way, thanking those who listened to him, fought for him around the world and those who worked with him. I liked it and that was the end of an era for me.
