Tim Russert Dies of Heart Attack at 58



MEET THE PRESS. After vacationing in Italy to celebrate his son's graduation from Boston College, Tim Russert collapsed and died at work today. His legacy of journalism with a capital J will live on, but Sunday mornings will not be the same.

My prayers go out to his family.

Hey Craig,
We just heard the BBC news.
Tim was quick to recognize that no one is truly objective and this is why he strove so ardently to be careful in the way in which he constructed his interviews.
We will miss Meet The Press and Tim Russert. He was the same age as Steve. Tim wrote a book about his Dad, "Big Rus and Me, Father and son". His Dad is 83, the same age as Steve's Dad. Some coincidences I do not like.

Our prayers go out to his Dad and Tims's family as well

btw
your book is beautifully done :-)
