Tim Russert

It was ironic that I'd be in Washington, DC sitting in a movie theater when my friend Thaddeus left me a message saying Tim Russert had died.

Much of my imagining of Washington and its workings was informed by Mr. Russert and his colleagues. In my lifetime I have no memory of anyone else sitting in that now empty chair. This general election season won't be the same without him.
