David Halberstam...

pretty sad that the last day have included the passing of so many interesting and famous people - Vonnegut, Yeltsin, and Halberstam. Much as been written about all 3, and i guess i don't have much to add to the conversation, except to say that I will miss halberstam and his take on popular culture and sports. It may not have even been a sport or subject i was interested in or particularly cared for, but whenever i heard about a new book or column, i invariable had to check it out. In most cases, I probably learned something about a area i hadn't considered before, and had a chance to learn about a person or era in a way that was unique and engaging
