    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- David Halberstam, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer who chronicled the Vietnam War generation, civil rights and the world of sports, was killed in a car crash Monday, his wife and local authorities said. He was 73.

It's not every writer who could write about Maurice Lucas as clearly and expertly as he could write about Robert McNamara. Since he focused mostly on three of my favorite topics to read about (history, sports and the societal impact therein), I read almost everything in his backlog in college and never failed to miss anything that came out hence. He was a journalist who wrote books as opposed to an author who happened to cover things, and there's a big difference.

Oddly enough, I just bought a replacement copy of The Breaks Of The Game at a used bookstore on Friday. Also, it's a shame that the book he was working on (subject: The Giants-Colts NFL Title Game) will never be finished now..

The Loki one is pretty damn sweet. Good to hear you had a good time! Unfortunately we don't really have FCBD here. In fact, I don't think there's a real store left in my city. Oh well. I'll order some stuff online if needed.
