North Carolina loses a great man

Paul Luebke.jpgIt will take all week — at least — to chronicle the many accomplishments and principled stands taken by Durham’s Paul Luebke during his many years of service to the state of North Carolina.

Luebke was a lawmaker, a scholar and, above all, great and relentless champion of social, political and economic justice and a crusader on behalf of the underdogs and working people of our state.

Sadly, as WRAL.com and other news sites are reporting today, we lost Paul last night as he succumbed after an extended battle with lymphoma. It was too early to lose such a fine man and he will be greatly missed. R.I.P.
