About Ashley

Ashley Halsey reports on national and local transportation. Although he has had a fairly extensive number of interesting experiences, collectively they've not transformed him into a particularly interesting person. He was, for instance, the first person to learn who the real "Sam" was for "Son of Sam" killer David Berkowitz. He once drank moonshine with Orville McCoy of the infamous Hatfields-and-McCoys deadly feud. He came with in a hair of death after being hit by a speeding Studebaker. He was on a biplane that crash landed on the runway at Reagan National Airport. He has met several presidents and not been able to offer any of them an original thought.
