Sunday best

Two terrific pieces in The Sunday Times today. One from former Financial Times editor Andrew Gowers, giving an insider's view of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, where he was a member of the bank's communications team.
The other was written over 40 years ago by Nick Tomalin in 1966 and is carried in the 'From The Archive' slot. 'American general goes zapping Charlie Cong', is a terrifying extract from an interview with a trigger happy US general in Vietnam. Tomalin was killed seven years later covering the Yom Kippur war.
