Karl Rove, the man President Bush referred to as "Boy Genius" when Rove served as his deputy chief of staff, has been subpoenaed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee today. If Rove, now a pundit for Fox News, fails to show up - his lawyer said he wouldn't - Congress should find him and arrest him. If lawmakers fail to do so promptly, the law itself will lose its meaning and Congress will lose what little respect the public has for it. The committee wants to ask Rove about his...

I was looking out on Chesapeake Bay, sipping a chilled white wine and nibbling a pear plucked from a tree outside my window when I heard that Tim Russert was dead. I didn't know him, but like everyone else who follows politics, I recognized him as a media hero for our time. Media heroes - reporters and pundits - are omnipresent if not omniscient in our lives. It was not always so. Once, poets were society's heroes, swains who sang sweet songs about love and life reflecting on questions of...

It sounds redundant, but sometimes death can be followed by overkill. Such seemed to be the case recently when NBC _ followed shortly by every television network and newspaper in the known universe _ conveyed to audiences that the passing of Tim Russert, 58, on June 13 was a national tragedy of profoundly epic proportions. In the days that followed the death of this popular author and TV host, a lively debate emerged regarding his colleagues' voluminous and quasi-lachrymose tributes. Did...

The "Meet the Press" host had what was arguably the most important and far-reaching job in television news, particularly in an election year. NBC has potential successors to Russert on "Meet the Press" already within the company. The...

Yet at 58, he suffered a heart attack and died. That's not uncommon, cardiologists say. Heart disease patients can significantly reduce their chances of a heart attack, but they can't totally prevent it, said Dr. Howard Hodis, of the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California....
