I was traveling Friday night and at the airport I saw people gathered around the monitors watching the television coverage of Tim Russert.

Sometimes events that are big news in Washington, D.C. don’t resonate elsewhere in the country. Russert connected with people in a way that many of his more blow-dried colleagues didn’t.
