Big Russ

A very sad start to the weekend as Tim Russert died today of a heart attack at the age of 58. The "Meet the Press" host was the king of political journalism. In a media culture full of blowhards and partisans, Russert was the ultimate in fair, down-the-middle reporting.

Amy & I would often tape his show on the DVR and watch it on Sunday nights after the boys were down. What a loss.
