Guest: David Halberstam, author of Summer of '49 and October 1964. New Yorkers are often accused of being self-absorbed, but this week they've got good reason to be — a World Series between the Mets and the Yankees. There hasn't been a subway series since 1956, when the Yankees took seven games to beat the Brooklyn Dodgers in Ebbetts Field.
