I could not be sadder

Mr W just called and told me that Tim Russert died of a heart attack today in the newsroom of NBC Washington.  What a tremendous loss, both to NBC, where he has been Bureau Chief and moderator of Meet the Press, and to the public.


Newsmen like him are rare and valuable.  I never saw him be anything but concise and professional.  He had a big heart, undying love for his work and great enthusiasm for political news. 


We lost a real good one today.
