Mark just e-mailed me this link:
SFGate reported 73-year-old David Halberstam was killed in a car wreck. He was on his way to a interview for a book he was planning about a legendary 1958 football game between the New York Giants and the Baltimore Colts.
According to the article:
Halberstam had been in the Bay Area to deliver a speech at UC Berkeley about what it means to turn reporting into a work of history, said Orville Schell, the dean at Berkeley’s graduate school of journalism.
