Sunday mornings won't be the same for me without Tim Russert. I'm surprised how sad I am about his passing. I'm a big newsie, I'll admit it, I'll talk politics with anyone. I loved watching his interviews with politicians on Meet the Press. He was the best at it. Also, he seemed like a really nice guy. Something about him always reminded me of my dad. My cousin Andy has been the cameraman for Meet the Press for the past couple years and he said he really was nice in person. 58! That's young. I'm going to miss him this election season. My heart goes out to his wife and his son and his dad.
On that note, Happy Father's Day! If you have a dad, or know a dad, let him know he's loved and thank him for his efforts. They don't go unnoticed. If you are a dad, please take care of yourself. We like having you around.
