NBC’s David Bloom dies in Iraq
Back in January, this man was anchoring the Weekend Today Show. One Saturday in particular, a pro hockey player and his son were guests on the show, and Bloom was showing his skating prowess, scoring goals and getting "schooled" by a six-yr-old, all while Soledad and the weather guy looked on. They were having fun, and that's the memory I've had of Bloom as I've watched his reports from the frontlines. It's the first thing I thought of as I heard the news today.
