lost in the shuffle, haider dies drunk

In all the election economic news, a small story is barely reported in the US:
Austrian far-right politician Joerg Haider was drunk at the time of his fatal car crash last Saturday, an official from his party has said... Mr Haider, 58, was driving alone after leaving a nightclub early on Saturday when his car crashed and overturned. Police have said he was travelling at 142km/h (88mph) in a 70km/h zone.
