Over the Rainbow

It was a sort of re-discovery of this beautiful song for me, that was played at the funeral of a truly great guy. I never watched much of 'Meet the Press' but from what little I watched of him on NBC and the outstanding media coverage of the past week it does seem like Tim Russert was truly a legend.

A double rainbow appeared over the Washington sky after the funeral Mass, it seemed like nature was paying her tribute too.

The title of this post is a song title, written for the movie 'The Wizard of Oz'

Hey RZD, you write really well. Talking about Tim Russert, I watched his show whenever I got a chance. He really did his homework well. His questions were always evidence based.

I listened to his CD book " Big Russ and Me" very inspirational. Gives an
Idea of who Tim Russert really was.

Worth reading…..
