On Pete DeCoursey

Published by Tim McNulty on .

Pete DeCourseyLongtime Harrisburg political reporter Pete DeCoursey was a colorful guy -- as his Patriot-News obit here by Charles Thompson notes -- who was at once combative yet welcoming to other reporters (and politicians) alike.

John Micek has a lot more color here, with comment from our old pal Laura Olson included. (Laura is interviewed for the obit too.) DeCoursey died yesterday at cancer at age 52.
