(Tim Russert, RIP June 13, 2008)
I am pretty new to the Sunday news shows, but my church meets at night, so I occasionally tune in, and this being an election year, I've become a little more interested. So the fact that I just watched Tim on Sunday and never will see him live again, well, it's not as devastating as the tornados or the floods or the earthquake survivors...but it's not a small loss.
He seemed so cool, calm, and collected. And 58 is very young. I've put his books, Big Russ and Me, and Wisdom of our fathers on hold.
Link from The Caucus, a NYT blog. Oh, and I see that his wife and son were in Italy and have been flown back.
Go hug your dad.
