I have been a longtime admirer of Tim Russert
and was saddened to hear that he died of a heart attack--at the young age of 58. Even though I get my daily doses of Chris Matthews
and Keith Olberman
, I always looked forward to Meet the Press
on Sundays and especially his political coverage during the recent presidential primaries. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Big Russ and the rest of the family.
