R.I.P. Tony Snow

After a long battle with cancer, former White House press secretary and Fox News reporter Tony Snow passed on this morning. He was only 53. Tony brought a positive zest and zeal to his work and it very much came through when you watched him on television. He was someone I truly could relate to, and someone I had the utmost admiration for. His passion for his job and his country remind me of another great journalis we lost far too young recently - Tim Russert.

President Bush said of him "America has lost a devoted public servant and a man of character. It was a joy to watch Tony at the podium each day. He brought wit, grace, and a great love of country to his work. "All of us here at the White House will miss Tony, as will the millions of Americans he inspired with his brave struggle against cancer."

Tony is survived by his wife Jill and their three children. Please keep the Snow family in your thoughts and prayers. Tony, you'll be missed!
