R.I.P J.D. Salinger

I'm genuinely saddened to hear about the death of J.D Salinger this week. A truly amazing author who started my love affair (That's a little romantic. It's more a debauched fling that we'll both regret in the future) with the written word when I read 'Catcher In The Rye' for the first time too many years ago now.

I hope for Jerome David's sake up there that OPM were wrong when they sang 'Heaven is a Halfpipe'. I hope it's more, y'know, a reclusive house in the middle of nowhere. No phonies or people thinkin' they're big shots allowed.
