R.I.P. Tim Russert

As I found out about Tim Russert's passing earlier today, I was both saddened and shocked. At times he almost seemed bigger than life when he covered politics, but it was just Tim being Tim. There was no one in the news business who worked harder, or had the passion for politics as he did. A man of great fairness and integrity, a family man, a true gentleman. In this age of media bias, he was someone that you could truly trust. Someone who was universally loved no matter what your political leanings are. He was a role model for everyone. No one did it better, and I doubt I will see anyone again in my lifetime who ever cover politics the way did. Rest in peace, Tim. You are already missed!
