Along the Route: Tim Russert Highway

Here's a bit of a non sequitur:

Earlier today our Commander-in-Chief signed a bill into law officially renaming a section of our very own US Route 20 as the Tim Russert Highway. Mr. Russert, a 16-year anchor of NBC's Meet the Press, was a Buffalo native and a big fan of the Buffalo Bills, whose stadium is also along US-20.

We're scheduled to hit this stretch of highway on Day 13 or 14. We'll look for the new road signs.
