goodbyes to heroes.

It seems like a generation of heroes are on the move this week. Howard Zinn and now JD Salinger. Ah – on the same, sad day – Jan 27. You’ll be missed.

I really enjoyed this letter from JD Salinger regarding the denial of movie rights for Catcher in the Rye. via Letters of Note. You cannot say the man did not care about his characters.


“Not to mention, God help us all, the immeasurably risky business of using actors.”
