Jerry Hirshberg put his stamp on a fleet of cars, from the 1971 Buick “Boattail” Riviera to the 1999 revival of Nissan’s sporty Z car.

The cause of death was glioblastoma, a brain cancer that had been diagnosed a year ago.A restless innovator who idolized Leonardo da Vinci, Hirshberg was a musician, painter and writer who in 1980 opened Nissan’s first design center outside Japan.

James Burke could receive more than four years in prison when he’s sentenced Wednesday. He pleaded guilty last winter to violating the man’s civil rights and then trying to cover it up.

All three had previously said that they would not run for president in 2020. "This cycle is actually really interesting because it's the first time where all these people have said 'No' and then they've come back around and said, 'You … [Read more...] about Is it too late for more Democrats to jump into 2020 race?
