I wonder if Brit will now feel comfortable coming out about the real story behind his son Sandy's "suicide"?

WaPo: Fox's Hume to Step Down

Brit Hume, a top anchor and executive with Fox News since the channel was launched 12 years ago, plans to step down at year's end. But he won't disappear entirely.

Sources familiar with the situation say that Hume, 65, will give up his job as Washington managing editor and anchor of 'Special Report,' the 6 p.m. show that has beaten the cable news competition for seven years. They say he is near a deal to continue with Fox in a senior-statesman role, not unlike that of NBC's Tom Brokaw, for roughly 100 days a year.

I wondered why the Congressman resigned so suddenly, but hadn't heard the speculation. Isn't it pathetically sad that these things still happen in today's day and age?

Oh, well. He'll just be replaced by another who's even worse.
