Quote for the Day

"Halberstam was an exceptional and relentless journalist -- had more reporters been as questioning early in the Iraq War as Halberstam was in Vietnam, we might not be in our current quagmire -- but his strength and beauty, what really set him apart, was that he wrote about everything, absolutely everything. Because everything interested him. He wrote about the Vietnam War, Bobby Kennedy, the Blazers, the media, the Japanese car industry, the 1949 pennant race, Bill Walton, the 1960s civil rights movement, Michael Jordan, 1950s popular culture, Bobby Knight, the 9/11 firefighters, the Korean War, the 1964 World Series … about the only thing he missed was Madonna," - Jim Caple, ESPN.
