Tim Russert

I was very saddened to learn today of the sudden passing of Tim Russert.

In a media saturated age when it is sometimes difficult to discern the talking head journalists from political lobbyists, Tim Russert always seemed to rise above the fray, and ask the tough questions while maintaining professionalism.

It seems an especially cruel twist of fate that Tim went this year, at this time, just before the ramp up to what will likely by a historic election.

Besides mourning Tim Russert's loss as a political journalist, I'll also miss him as a fellow son of Buffalo, who always represented his hometown well and never missed an opportunity to cheer on the Bills or the Sabres.
