I am at a loss for words, and that pretty much never happens to me. I just have one thought, one question really: How are we going to get through an election without him?

May 7, 1950 – June 13, 2008

My thoughts and prayers go out to Tim Russert’s family.

  1. Oh, Cheri, Tony and I had the exact same image of him in our head when we heard the news today. Tim Russert, all giddy, holding his dry erase board. He will be missed.

  2. without him for the election… that’s exactly what my husband and i were talking about tonight. it’s devastating.


  3. Seriously.
    Why not Bill O’Reilly?
    Or Rush Limbaugh?
    Or Tucker Carlson?
    No, it had to be Tim Russert.

    Like my friend Rachel told me: It’s not that the wrong people die. It’s that the right people don’t die.

  4. I’m still shocked. He was really the only member of the media who still held some journalistic integrity and he was always welcome in our living room. His humility and family values are traits I can only hope to emulate.

Lurkers are welcome. Commenters are welcomer.
