David Halberstam

I’m so so sorry. We lost another beloved today. David Halberstam was killed in a car crash this morning. You may know him from his many works including "The Best and The Brightest" where he wrote how the smart men in power led us to a disastrous no win war on the other side of the world. Or any of his pulitizer prize winning work.  He was one of Hunter’s people although their journalism styles were very different with a shared love for the truth and a elegant way of telling it.  He wrote an astute, beautiful introduction for Hunter’s second volume of Letters "Fear and Loathing in America". I’m sitting here at the architecture library where they don’t have a copy. But I’ll post some of it later. Again, I’m so sorry to report another loss.

Your friend,

Anita Thompson
