Bob Simon and David Carr

To lose the great Bob Simon in a stupid car crash on the West Side Highway was shocking.  To read the news of David Carr’s death yesterday seemed unreal.  Fifteen years apart in age but connected in their commitment to great stories, their honesty, their insight, and their superb writing.  They both set the bar for their profession and also for any profession.  They tried to be truth-tellers and succeeded.  Profound loss doesn’t even begin to describe it.
