    against those who reacted callously to Russert's death should assure you that many of us will rise to your defense.

    Rest easy, my friend.

      No, I mean if a bunch of people sit around telling lies about me just because it's what social programming mandates.

      I want all my exes getting together and talking about how bad I am in bed.I want people talking about all the crazy stupid stuff I did.  I want to be commemorated and remembered for who I am and not some idealized version of what I was supposed to be.  

      When you talk about what someone should have been rather than what they really were, you're only highlighting their failures.  I'm sure Russert would have loved to have been half of what people are today saying he was.  He wasn't.  Why rub it in?
