America at Large: I don't know Dick Ebersol especially well, which is why I've been puzzling over the fact I've found myself so profoundly affected by the tragedy which befell his family this week, writes George Kimball.

Although our professional and social interaction has never been anything but cordial, it occurs to me I've never before written anything that wasn't critical of Ebersol's decision-making.
