Former '60 Minutes' anchor Mike Wallace has died
« on: April 08, 2012, 08:07:25 PM »
Newsman and CBS '60 Minutes' mainstay Mike Wallace has died. He was 93.

From the article:
Morley Safer recalled his longtime colleague as someone who was "never dull," "fearless" and "tenacious," driven to get a scoop and to the heart of events, issues and people that shaped the world.

"Mike was irrepressible. You could never ... knock him down, he would bounce right back up," said Safer, expressing a deep admiration for a man whom he'd often jostle against for stories. "The fact is he was nosier than everybody else and more insistent, and more successful at being nosy."

Memory eternal.  :'(
