P. R. Latta: Profile from Examiner.com in 2010

I just got the word via Facebook that P. R. Latta has passed on today. I am sad to lose such a wonderful friend and Democratic warrior. I am updating this from 2010, when I did a long interview with P. R. by phone.

Each year the Wake County Young Democrats hold a major fundraiser, and one person is honored at a dinner and awarded that year's P. R. Latta Award. According to Zeke Creech who presided over the first award dinner in 2001, the award is intended to honor a Democrat for his/her lifetime of service to the Democratic Party and to their community.

Dear Supporter of the Wake County Young Democrats,

As an observer of the political process, I do not have to remind you of the excitement generated within the Democratic Party in the past 12 months since the Wake County Young Democrats appealed to you for sponsorship of our annual P. R. Latta Award reception dinner.

Who loves America More? Democrats or Republicans?

While the Republican Party seems to most relish the outward signs of patriotism, such as waving the flag, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and sending troops into harm’s way with aplomb, it is the Democrats who have the longer record prosecuting our nation’s wars since World War I.

Indeed, it was President Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, who lead us to victory in World War I; it was President Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, who lead our nation against Nazi aggression in World War II; it was President Harry Truman, a Democrat, who completed our victory in World War II with the bombing of Japan, and who entered America into the Korean conflict; it was John F. Kennedy, a Democrat, who created the Green Berets and who stood down the Russians during the Cuban Missile Crisis; and it was Lyndon Johnson, a Democrat, who put troops in Vietnam.
