This just in, from the L.A. Times, reminds me of my 2007 post on the untimely and tragic death of cosmologist Jeffrey Willick and other thought-provoking matters:
EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 66-year-old man eating breakfast at a California fast-food restaurant was killed when a vehicle plowed through the corner of the building.
El Cajon Police Lt. Jeff Davis says the man was sitting in a front corner booth at a Carl's Jr. in San Diego County on Sunday morning when a Honda CRV slammed into the restaurant.
The 74-year-old driver, a resident of El Cajon, was taken to a hospital with moderate injuries.
The cause of the crash is under investigation. A witness told officers it appeared the SUV was going 45 to 50 mph.
The restaurant is closed as officials determine the structural integrity of the building.
