It Doesn't Seem Possible

Tim Russert of the NBC television network passed away suddenly today at the age of 58. He is survived by his wife Maureen Orth, their son Luke and his Dad “Big Russ”, who was the subject of Tim’s 2004 bestselling book “Big Russ and Me”. Tim was the heart and head of all things political at NBC and MSNBC. Being as interested in politics as Chuck and I are, this feels like a personal loss to us, based on that strangely deep connection we have with folks that communicate to us through the vivid TV screen.

Hi Carrie -
He really was everywhere - Meet The Press, MSNBC, The Today Show, The Evening News...
He was very bright and seemed to grasp the big picture, even when others were going off on tangents.
He will be missed.
