I'm One Hero Less
May 7, 1950 - June 13, 2008
My favorite interviewer died today. I enjoyed watching the different expressions on his face. There was joy, honesty, joy, kindness, joy, integrity, joy, goodness, joy, love and joy. And there was respect--no matter who he interviewed.
Barbara Walters has never spoken truer words: "Tim represented the best in journalism..."
I agree and I'll miss him. To me, Tim Russert was a lesson in joy. I feel blessed to have known him--even though it was only through the tube.
