I thought it was longer ago than that photo
  It was September 2, 1963 and CBS made a giant move, Walter Cronkite and the network began to broadcast for 30 minutes.
  Until that time the network news for all networks had been a fifteen minute broadcast after 15 minutes of local news.
  It seems longer ago than that to me.  Now we live in a 24 hour a day news cycle that repeats, and adds on, on the net, on cable TV and, for some people, even on the telephone.
  I am not convinced it's worth it and I will admit to being a "news junkie", but could my time be better spent?
