r.i.p. tim russert

I was at work today when I learned that journalist Tim Russert suffered a heart attack and passed away this morning.

As a fellow journalist, I really respected his work and the way he always tried to present an even-handed clear cut breakdown of American politics. With the much-hyped upcoming 2008 presidential election on the horizon, I will certainly miss his coverage and viewpoints.

Fellow colleagues, including Matt Lauer and Tom Brokaw will helm a special edition of “The Today Show” tomorrow morning in tribute to Tim Russert. I’ll definitely be tuning in.

So were any of you a fan of Russert’s work?
