RIP Tim Russert

I'm shocked to learn that Tim Russert has died of a heart attack. Having seen many of his recent appearances on MSNBC's coverage of the Clinton-Obama race, and with the perfect vision of hindsight, it's easy to say he didn't look well. And apparently he wasn't well.

It's sad and jarring. He was a familiar face and in that way a comforting one.

The world of TV Journalism really lost their gem. There are very few (tv j's) whom I trust and Tim Russert was at the top of that list. It is a huge loss for this country, and the timing couldn't be worse!
