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 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.
