Russert's Books # 1 and #2 on Amazon

Yesterday's shocking and tragic death of "Meet The Press" moderator and national political fixture Tim Russert has resonated with the public — not only by the wall-to-wall coverage on the cable news channels beginning yesterday afternoon, but in online book sales for his two bestsellers,"Big Russ and Me: Father and Son: Lessons of Life" and the follow-up "Wisdom of Our Fathers: Lessons and Letters from Daughters and Sons," which was based on letters he received in response to the first book. Today, those books are #1 and #2 on the Amazon bestseller list, no doubt buoyed by the sad irony that Russert, so inspired by his own father, and so well-known as a proud father of his own son, Luke, died on the eve of Father's Day Weekend.
