R.I.P. Luke Letlow

Luke Letlow

I know very little about Luke Letlow, except that he was 41 years old and had just been elected to the U. S. House of Representatives as a Louisiana Republican.

And that he has just died, another victim of that vile virus.

Whether he was a conservative or a liberal, I have no idea, but no matter.

A man in his prime, undoubtedly thrilled at his electoral victory and suffused with excitement at the prospect of making a real difference, then struck down before he had even taken his seat in Congress?

How utterly tragic.
My sincere sympathies to those bereaved by his death.
