Tom Brokaw did the actual break-in on NBC and MSNBC just now. Very 
touching.  Now, it's Brian Williams on MSNBC live from a US Afghanistan 
airfield with Andrea Mitchell in DC.

Big Russ and Me was one of the best books I've ever read.  And one of 
the only that I then went on to share with my dad.  Apparently, Tim had 
been working quite hard. He was at work prepping for Meet the Press and 
other weekend duties.  What a loss.
