I was extremely saddened to hear today of the unexpected passing of former journalist and former Harris County District Attorney's Office spokesman George Flynn.
I first met George through Mike Hinton, who loved nothing more than getting together with George and telling stories from the old days. His war stories were priceless. He was an amazing gateway to the history of Harris County's criminal justice system.
He would write in to the blog on occasion over the years and he very much had a sense of right and wrong about the goings on at the Office. I can't say that I knew him as well as his friends from those old days, but I knew him as a man who the truth mattered greatly to.
Mostly, I knew George Flynn as a very kind and humble man.
My thoughts and prayers go out to George's family.
