RIP George Coburn of The Wheeler Report

Today's Wheeler Report shares the sad news that George Coburn, "master of this website for more than 10 years lost a three-month struggle with cancer on Saturday. He posted his last news release on Friday, June 26."

From the notice:

His one editorial comment in the 17 years he worked with Wheeler News Service and Wheeler Reports was so subtle no one ever noticed.

George believed everyone should have their say on almost anything, but he refused to contribute to the delinquency of never-ending attack releases.

So, he put "Campaigns, Elections and Politics" at the bottom of the daily listing on the website, giving them their say, but denying them the prominence and credibility they sought. His legacy will remain.
