Mark Binker, a Dean of the State Press Corps, Passes Away at 43

Few reporters in North Carolina have the gravitas of Mark Binker, who covered state government for WRAL for five years before his recent move to The News & Observer's N.C. Insider newsletter. Binker, who died suddenly Saturday at the way-too-damn-young age of forty-three, was a dean of the state press corps—smart, dogged, fair, and universally respected. He was the best of us. There will be a service at the Memorial Auditorium in Raleigh at three p.m. on May 12. If you'd like to support the wife and two sons he leaves behind, a YouCaring fundraising page has been set up. As of Tuesday morning, 171 supporters have raised nearly $11,000.
