R.I.P. Tim Russert
Why does his death suck? Because with the death of the last true journalist, assholes like us are going to take his place.
And for the record, I can't remember a time when someone so important and influential to society died at the top of their game. The only name I can think of is Paul Wellstone. Anyone who can come up with a better or more recent example of someone in society (not an athlete or celebrity) dying while still making an impact gets Straight Up Sports stock options.
