It's sad when anyone dies, but I couldn't stand Tim Russert, especially during the primaries. Is that okay to say? He was blatantly sexist and had little respect for women in politics. I'm surprised to read all these comments from women. I think reading about those boyscouts who got killed by the tornado or those 2 little girls who were shot walking down a country road was a lot more heart wrenching, but they weren't famous.
My next door neighbor was buried last week and I attended the service. He was an alcoholic and smoked himself to death by age 59. So we all sat around and said wonderful things and I hugged his wife and told her he was in Heaven with the angels. I wanted to say "Guess I'll never see that $10 bucks I loaned him a few months ago." So as I said, it's always sad for someone when a loved one dies. Rest in peace.
