I turned it on when I came home just in time to see Bruce.

Very moving service.

Apparently as they were leaving the service "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" was playing, and when people walked out there was a bright rainbow over the NBC Washington Studio...I saw a photo of it on MSNBC I don't know if it's online somewhere.

I didn't get home in time to see it live, but MSNBC aired it again just before

That is stunning. I haven't heard about that.
Now I'm all choked up again.

I really enjoyed all the personal stories. I got choked up more than a couple of times. I saw the rainbow picture too. Poetic justice, I believe Brian Williams said.

I just finished watching the repeat of the memorial service. It was beautifully done. Gov. Cuomo was quite funny.

Luke Russert seems like an extremely good kid. I feel so badly for him. What a hole he has in his life now.

That version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" that played at the end of the service was gorgeous. I'm still humming it.

I will miss this man as I watch Keith and the gang at MSNBC covering the campaign and the election. This is going to be quite a year and he's not there.

I loved Maria Shriver's speech, that one really got me. The poem a friend gave her about John Jr, and when she said this

You see, I lost my heart to Timmy Russert the day I met him. And the
entire time I knew him, he took care of it. He protected my heart
when it needed protection. He nurtured it when it needed care. And
he helped it grow. And he never, ever broke it. A rare man indeed.


It was a beautiful service, very well done and true to who Tim was

if anyone hasn't heard Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's version of "somewhere over the rainbow," you should immediately go to iTunes and download it.

that's the version played at the funeral.

I would be surprised if anyone has not heard it

it has been in several movies, t v programs and commercials

I remember hearing it the first time sometime in the 90s

it is beautiful

Israel died in 1997

my favorite song by him is

Hawaii 78

it is him speaking from his own heart

to me it is almost "other worldly".

Israel is an amazing singer...he was gone too soon.

Brian Williams will be hosting MTP this Sunday. I figure NBC will be cycling through hosts until they can decide on somebody. Those will be huge shoes to fill.

Williams would be one of the better picks.






I don't want to derail this too much

here is good picture (rainbow included)

I'd go with BW as well (I know this may shock some people ), and maybe after some years of experience I'd put Chuck Todd in there.


Both were very close to Tim and are still having a difficult time with the loss.
