"Florida, Florida,Florida"

The most memorable phrase, uttered by Tim Russert very late on election night 2000. And he was right. I was very shocked this afternoon to learn of his untimely death at the age of 58. I don't know how we'll get through another election night without him. Not very well, I think. He was such a staple. Meat and potatoes- politics and Russert. Does this bode ill for November?
Here is the wine glass turned candle holder, curtesy Kateri. I was able to break the rest of the glass and pull it out and my thinner candles fit perfectly.

And here it is in its new home, lit in memoriam and with a prayer for Mr. Russert and family.
