Senator Kubly was a humble, religious man who will be remembered fondly in history. What a contrast in values, style, and intelligence when compared to the person in your last story!

He sounds like the sort of quiet, hardworking, and unshakably decent person Minnesota, especially rural Minnesota, once was noted for producing. Ave atque vale, Rev. Kubly!

This caught my eye:

I had the honor of serving with Senator Kubly in both the Minnesota House and Senate. As a Lutheran minister, he often led the Senate in our opening prayer, and I will always remember his inspiring messages.

I couldn't help but think of the last time I remember reading about a minister opening a legislative session with a prayer: http://blogs.citypages.com/blotter/2011/05/bradlee_dean_opening_prayer.php

I suspect that Rev. Kubly's prayers were nothing like this, thank goodness.

His voice of reason in the legislature will be missed. A sad day the people of Granite Falls and all of Minnesota. Were it that more of our legislators took his approach to governing.
