Father’s Day

by admin on June 13, 2008

I was terribly shocked and saddened to hear about Tim Russert today. My dad died six years ago this weekend while I was out of the country, so I know the heartache of such a thing. I’m not going to give you any twee advice about hugging your father or family this weekend, but I will ask one thing.

Can the pundits please lay off the “he’s doing his interviews in heaven now”?

It would have driven my dad crazy.
