Political journalist and host of Meet the Press Tim Russert passed away today at the very young age of 58. Apparently he died of a heart attack at work, having recently returned from a European vacation with his family.
Thank you, Tim, for putting the uber-complicated world of politics in terms I could understand, and for always having just the right mix of knowledge, intellect, humor and humanity.
My condolences go out to his wife Maureen, son Luke, father “Big Russ” and all of his friends and colleagues.
I’m going to miss you and your Dry Erase board.
