How is this political? Tim Russert died, no politics. Sad news, he was great and incredibly brilliant.

he was an icon. really sad considering his potential to cover many future political stories. he seemed to epitomize a rare genuine character in the realm of the media. he's gonna be missed and meet the press wont be the same. rip.

I don't even know what to say. He really was a great and brilliant guy, and he was beyond adored here in Buffalo. I can't believe it.

Like McGee said, he was adored here in Buffalo. Flags are at half staff here.

I will miss his constant Bills support.
