    Little longer story.

    He went out how he wanted to go out. Kudos, and RIP.

    Just saw this. RIP to one of the most enigmatic personalities during my lifetime. Let's hope there are no phonies in heaven.

    He was 91.

    Salinger, Zinn and Zelda Rubenstien (the psychic from The Twilight Zone) all died today.

    It will be interesting to see what becomes of his unpublished writings now that he's gone.

    That's three Salinger threads.

    Geez, can't people see what's right in front of them?

    The big question.

    Loved most everything he did with the exception of Catcher, which never clicked for me.

    His son, btw, once starred in a terrible, terrible "Captain America" movie.

    WaPo has a rather lengthy obit up now as well:

    Read "Catcher in the Rye" once in my early 20s, just to say that I had done it. Didn't really resonate with me, either, but I'm sure it would have been different had I read it in 1951.

    EDIT: To include this nugget from the story:

    Wonder if they'll ever see the light of day?
