Shock and Loss

I just heard Tim Russert, the American journalist, NBC political analyst, and host of "Meet the Press", died earlier today of an apparent coronary embolism.  Gone too soon at the age of 58.  That's scary! 

It seemed I always learned something about our political process from Tim Russert.  I'd like to believe that if we had ever met, we could have been friends.  I cannot imagine enduring all the stuff that is ahead of us with the national election in November without him.  His brow was often furrowed, and sometimes he seemed a bit smug, but he was one of the few "talking heads" I actually enjoyed.  I guess heaven will get the straight scoop from him, especially with his little whiteboard and red and blue markers.

Rest in Peace, Tim Russert.
