Tim Russert from Meet The Press has suddenly passed away. He was only 58 years old, and died of a heart attack.  Tim's family issued a confirmation to The New York Times today.

President Bush has offered his condolences to the family, saying, "Tim was a tough and hardworking newsman. He was always well-informed and thorough in his interviews. And he was as gregarious off the set as he was prepared on it." I

t's so sad to someone who was so young die so suddenly like that. Our thoughts are with the family.
