Wow. This one threw me for a loop:

WASHINGTON – Tim Russert, NBC News’ Washington bureau chief and the moderator of “Meet the Press,” died Friday after being stricken at the bureau, NBC News said Friday. He was 58.

Russert was recording voiceovers for Sunday’s “Meet the Press” broadcast when he collapsed, the network said.

He had recently returned from Italy, where his family was celebrating the graduation of Russert’s son, Luke, from Boston College.

No further details were immediately available.

Sad news. Russert wasn’t exactly what you would call right-leaning but I respected him in his line of work. Overall he was hard hitting on both sides and pretty fair. Seemed like a nice guy as well. Very sorry to hear this.

Make good use of your time, folks. He died doing what he loved. We should all strive for that.
