He is trending on Twitter, part of many headlines and breaking news crawls on television.
That has led some Restonians to ask Reston Now whether the news is about “our” Bob Simon, the 100-year-old founder of Reston.
It is not.
The Bob Simon all over the news Thursday is the longtime CBS News and 60 Minutes correspondent, who was killed in a car crash on New York City’s West Side Highway Wednesday night. The correspondent, who as held as a prisoner of war for 40 days during the first Gulf War, was 73.
Bob Simon, the founder of Reston, is just fine. He will celebrate his 101st birthday in April.
