Too Young

Tim Russert was never my favorite journalist.  I always respected his intellect, but I often found myself thinking that he was too hard on the politicians I liked and not hard enough on those I didn't.  On the other hand, I know plenty of people on the other side of the political divide who felt exactly the same way, so he must have been doing something right.

All I know for certain is that 58 is way, way too young for anyone to die.  My deepest sympathies to his family and friends.  He will be missed by all who appreciated his insights, his wit, and his passion.

Agreed. I was shocked when I heard the news. And I must admit I'm deeply saddened at the realization he won't be watching the presidential election play out to the end. I have a feeling he would have enjoyed every minute of the game.

(shrugs) Of course, maybe he'll still be watching - just from a better vantage point. In any case, my deepest condolences to his family.
