Tim Russert: 1950-2008

I couldn’t believe my ears today as word drifted in from my TV set to me in another room, that Tim Russert, one of the greatest news commentators of our times, had suddenly died at the very young age of 58.

Tim Russert was a brilliant, brilliant news reporter who could put any given politician on the hotseat with his incisive and thorough research.

American politics will not be exactly the same ever again. No one can fill this guys’ shoes.

In memory of Tim Russert’s life and career, here, in all of its You Tube glory, is my salute to Tim Russert, husband to Maureen, father to Luke and son of Big Russ.
