Goodbye to Tim Russert

I must be a really big super nerd. I was taken aback by the sudden death of NBC Journalist Tim Russert. I like him on Meet the Press. I've been watching it since I was a toddler. No kidding. There was no cable in my neighborhood in the early eighties, so the 5 TV stations we now call "Local TV" was it. And Sunday morning was the worst. So NBC's Meet the Press - at 9 am, was on the set.

I've always thought of him as fair but tough. I liked his presentation and vetting style. The Presidential Debates just won't be the same to me without him moderating.
