A sad day for journalists

America, the world in fact, lost a great journalist today.


I've been looking forward to watching the election this year under the guidance (and entertainment) of Tim Russert. In a world where Paris Hilton's dog gets regular headlines, and most people don't understand what politicos' promises really mean (or don't mean), Mr. Russert regularly brought good, objective coverage of American politics to all economic levels of society. He's one of the few out there who don't embarrass those of us who have earned journalism degrees.

My heart goes out to his wife and son, and the rest of his family.

Rest in peace, Tim.
