It is with great sadness that I note that Tim Russert has passed away. He died earlier today at his desk at NBC News while working. On the one hand, there is something about dying while doing what you love that is touching. But then again, passing away at 58 is so truly tragic - way too young.
As somebody who was a very long time viewer of NBC's Meet The Press, and who always enjoyed Russert's White Board at presidential election time, I will miss him greatly. And my condolences to his family.
