    Hello everyone.
    Sad word has reached us today that Howard Benedict, the long-time 
    Associated Press space reporter in Cape Canaveral, died yesterday at 
    his home in Cocoa. Some of you may not realize it, but you almost 
    certainly read Howard's stories during the Apollo, Skylab and 
    Apollo-Soyuz programs and in the early shuttle years. Here's a brief 
    story from Florida Today:
    I competed against Howard during my early years here as UPI bureau 
    chief. He was a gentleman, he played fair and he absolutely knew his 
    stuff. RIP, Howard. And thanks for the memories.
