Willie Marshall, MO Green Party leader, dies at 65

An article at the News Leader, Marshall is said to have single handedly recruited from St. Louis' black community so effectively that the city's Green Party chapter has a majority black rank-and-file membership. In 2005 he ran for Mayor, and won 21% of the vote.

My sympathies go to his family and the MO Greens. 65 years old is very young, and far too soon to loose such an important Green leader.
