Carpe diem, kids.
Although I really think Russert was part of the Iraq war hype machine, I hope I'm not famous when I die, because it's kind of icky watching MSNBC right now with all his colleagues exclaiming how they didn't know he had a health problem.
Well, now everybody knows he had a health problem, and I'm sure that's just what he would have wanted.
But part of me is still touched seeing all the stoic newspeople choking back tears.
So yeah, carpe the diem.
