Sad, Bad News

In a world of glitzed up, more smoke than substance news media celebrities, the honest, forthright newsman seems to be increasingly rarer to find. But right up on the top of that list was Tim Russert, host of Meet the Press since 1991, and a staple of my Sunday mornings. He unexpectedly died today, in his office, most likely working on something that would have elevated the stature of American News just a little bit higher than he was before.

This just sucks.
