Tim Russert - Requiescat in Pace
Tim Russert died suddenly at work today of an apparent heart attack. He was 58. He was a fine gentleman from Buffalo, received a Jesuit education before that was a "bad" thing, received a law degree, and while I did not agree with his politics, I have always thought him to be one of the best in an otherwise snarky business. He wrote a great book, "Big Russ and Me," a tribute to his dad, which I recommend. May his family, especially his grieving wife and son, find consolation in their faith and may his soul truly rest in peace.
We've lost one of our best.
