Following the death of Walter Cronkite I found myself as captivated as
any American by the many recaps of his long career as a newsman and,
of course, of his well-earned title of "the most trusted man in
America." There was much to cover and it's not surprising small but
significant bits were passed over. Among them is that Cronkite was an
outspoken opponent of the $69 billion-a-year war on drugs.

As a retired provincial court judge and a member of Law Enforcement
Against Prohibition (LEAP) I'd like to point out that Cronkite
endorsed a brief 12-minute DVD that we put out on the issue.
