Tim Russert Dead at 58......RIP

He died of an apparent heart attack.

Tim Russert, the host of "Meet the Press," TV News show, on NBC who rose from the inside world of politics where he was former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo's press secretary and one-time chief of staff to the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, was able to successfully cross over to political journalism and rise to become one of its leading lights. Even if he was a liberal I liked him. He never lost his 'blue collar" Buffalo, New York roots. He was a big fan of the Buffalo Bills NFL football team

My condolences to his family and friends. A fellow political junkie. He died too young! RIP
