Tim Russert has died.


This is obviously off-topic, but those of you who know me know that one of my biggest passions is following politics and one my grandest traditions was every Sunday sitting down with a cup of coffee and watching 'Meet the Press' with Tim Russert. Apparently he has died of a heart attack.

In my opinion, Tim Russert was a one of the greatest political interviewers of our time. I will miss him. Sundays will never be the same.

Arthur C. Clarke has died.


I know this is off-topic, but it deserves mention - Arthur C. Clarke has died. Not only one of the greatest science fiction writers that ever wrote, he was true visionary. If you don't know anything about him at least take a moment and read the wikipedia entry. When I was in college, I was exposed to a lot of public television interview footage of Arthur C. Clarke and it really was amazing.

Anyway, his passing deserves a mention and a moment.
