  • Herb Meschke: A Brilliant Mind In A Broken Body
    Fargo Forum/Area Voices: "They'll bury Herb Meschke later this week. I don't know if it will be in the North Dakota Bad Lands, where he was born and raised, or in Minot, where he spent most of his life. Wherever it is, his presence will enhance the stature of the cemetery. Herb was a cowboy, a lawyer, a Legislator, a judge and a family man. He took all of those jobs seriously. And he was pretty good at them."
