That Hastings Crash
Smart, detailed, piece at WhoWhatWhy on claims that Michael Hastings' car crash was not an accident but some kind of assassination plot. Writer, a former crime reporter who came upon the scene just after the crash and viewed surveillance video just after with cops, starts out skeptical but finally seems convinced--"just" an accident, at speeds of 80 mph or greater. Explosion pretty easy to explain--ruptured fuel line due to what car struck underneath. And more. Writer still wants to know, of course, why Hastings was driving so fast.
