Halberstam killed

Author David Halberstam, 73, was killed in a three-car accident today in Menlo Park, CA, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Oddly enough, every time I see Halberstam’s name, including tonight, I flash on a dear college friend of mine who had a wonderful story about driving the author from the airport to a speaking engagement in Austin. Halberstam died in the car of a UC Berkeley journalism student,  on the way from a speaking engagement to an interview, when the car he was riding in was broadsided by another automobile.
