RIP Bob Simon


“I’m old enough now that I’ve been to a lot of places, and there are a lot of places I care about. If China were to explode, I’d want to be there in a flash. If there’s a big story, I want to be there.”

—Bob Simon (1941-2015), CBS newsman killed Wednesday night in New York traffic crash, 1992.
