One of my students who works for a radio station called to
tell me the details of Vickrey's death. Here is the AP flash:

Nobel Death URGENT, take 3: 10-11 7:27 a

"Columbia says Vickrey was found unconscious and slumped
over the wheel of his car last night. He'd been traveling to an
academic conference when he was found, on a highway about
30 miles north of New Yrk City. He was 82."
