Tonight marks my Uncle Mark’s final appearance (after 33 years) on PBS NewsHour. His conservative counterpart, David Brooks wrote this lovely tribute to him in the The New York Times, in which he recounts their “thousands of disagreements over the years, but never a second of acrimony.” I really hope for this for us, here on FB.

This is me & my favorite, famous uncle, Mark Shields— a Washington Post syndicated columnist & regular on PBS NewsHour. After 33 years on PBS Friday nights, I’m gonna miss seeing him on my TV! 😢 Bravo, Uncle Mark on an amazing career, from which we’ve ALL benefited! 👏🏼🇺🇸💙
