Happy Birthday, Peter Jennings — On The Web & In The Sky

“We miss you so much,” one supporter wrote. “Happy Birthday today and all the ones to come.” Jennings replied this afternoon: “Many thanks to all of you for your birthday wishes. Your words — as always — are a great source of strength.”

Jennings responded by sending ice cream to WNT and calling in his thanks, according to a spokeswoman.

> Jennings “continues to participate in planning and critiquing the show,” but hasn’t been in the office since May 23, the AP says.
