Someone Great

I won’t get into how loss is all around us or any of that that sad stuff. But if you haven’t seen any of Tim Russert’s memorial service which was held at the nearby Kennedy Center today, do watch some clips. Lots of great speeches from great orators about a great American.

Many of them invoked Daniel Patrick Moynihan during the service, including one of my favorite quotes:

“I don’t think there’s any point in being Irish if you don’t know that the world is going to break your heart eventually.” (1963)

And don’t forget to watch the surprise performance from The Boss.
