Too Young

June 13, 2008

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.

    This has come as such a shock. I am going to miss Tim Russert — alot.

    David, you are right, Russert could aggravate both sides of the political spectrum. I liked him for that. I liked him even more that he honored his father with “Big Russ and Me.”
