Tim Russert (1950-2008)

It's always tough to read about people dying.

As one who flirted with a broadcasting career back in the day, it's always sad to read stories like this.

Russert, 58, was by all accounts a fair, honest and hard-nosed journalist. Even those he interviewed who disagreed with his politics would have agreed with that statement.

Aside from having a great first name, Russert was also a Red Sox fan.

Yes, I agree.

I didn't agree with his politics, but he was a very respectable and honorable individual.

I've learned a lot of really admirable and wonderful things about Russert with all the coverage since he passed away on Friday. I really like the fact that he treated everyone he encountered with the same friendly and down-to-earth respect. He seemed to always remember his roots and his Father and family.

By the way, Green, Happy Father's Day!
