New David Halberstam killed in car crash
Man, I would not to be that poor kid driving his car.




SAN FRANCISCO -- David Halberstam, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author who chronicled the Washington press corps, the Vietnam War generation and a wide range of sports, was killed in a car crash Monday, a coroner said. He was 73.

Halberstam, who lived in New York and Nantucket, Mass., was a passenger in a car that was broadsided by another vehicle in Menlo Park, south of San Francisco, San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault said. He said the cause of death had not been determined but appeared to be internal injuries.

The accident occurred around 10:30 a.m., and Halberstam was declared dead at the scene, Menlo Park Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman said.

The driver of the car carrying Halberstam and the person driving the car that crashed into his were injured.

After years of daily journalism, Halberstam turned his attention to America's fascination with sports later in his career.

New His prescient title from 1965 -
\ufffd The Making of a Quagmire: America and Vietnam During the Kennedy era (1965)

I suspect that some authors of the flood of new books detailing Quagmire II might have wished to reuse the title... or skip one -- maybe wait for onset of Iran, Quagmire III?

New Irony: a circumstance notable for incongruity
In Yahoo's "Top New Stories" today...

--- Author David Halberstam Killed in crash

Anyone remember his book: "The Reckoning?" (1986)

We will miss him.

New Excellent book, though he picked Nissan not Toyota.
Perhaps he's just off a few years.

He will be missed here too. He was a great writer.

Cheers,
Scott.
