well, this is depressing.
tim russert was more than the affable yet incisive host of meet the press. i was in such shock over this news that my officemate thought a friend of mine had died. i admired him for a host of reasons, like how he managed to draw great pride and comfort from his working-class roots, instead of abandoning them altogether or letting them fester into ruinous resentment and paranoia. he bridged the two worlds and made it look so easy. he also was on that coveted and elusive list of people with JDs who are not lawyers.
anyway...this is too sad. RIP, tim russert.
