Thank You, Tim Russert...

Being a quasi-prolific, albeit oft-financially strapped songwriter/producer/entrepreneur - I've spent many a-Saturday night creating into the morning hours of Sunday. Come to think of it, the days of the week were only relevant when I was in college. Anyway, I knew I had been working into Sunday morning because whenever I decided to end my day by turning on the TV, there would be all sorts of religious programming, ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulis, and NBC's Meet the Press with Tim Russert. With apologies to George (and evidently, also to Jesus), I'd usually watch Tim's program. The format was great: Get the talking head politician (or Stephen Colbert) to discuss some issues - hopefully when they're not just lobbing ad hom attacks - in a time frame longer than what's usually allotted in the evening broadcast news. Mr. Russert did a fine job as the catalyst of discussion.

Thanks, Tim. I got a little bit more civic education right before my Sunday morning bedtime thanks to you. I hope whomever/whatever you meet in the hereafter bodes well for you.
