Monday the Charlotte community unexpectedly lost one of its greatest journalists ever, David Poole, to a heart attack. David covered Nascar for the Charlotte Observer, and was a decorated writer. He hosted a call-in show on Sirius Radio and was a frequent guest on tv and radio shows across the country. While I know that Nascar is not exactly highly regarded on here (I know I'm that way), you have to give David some props for his abilities. If Rick Bonnell was half as good as his Nascar counterpart, the Bobcats would be much more well-known, and respected. David was known as one of the most honest, determined, and hard-working guys in his field, and he will be missed.
Thoughts and Prayers are with his family.
