First it was Howard Zinn and now J.D. Salinger. Between Franny & Zooey and Catcher in the Rye, Salinger has been a significant part of most folks’ life, including mine. And I’d like to say I’m sadden by this day, but after watching the Salinger “based” movie, Winter Passing starring Will Ferral and Zooey Deschanel (guess where her parents got the name Zooey?), a part of me is pretty damn excited to see what 40-50 books great American story comes out of the farmhouse he’s been in secluded at for the past few decades.
And to folks going out tonight in WBurg, beware of those hipsters with a copy of Catcher in their back pocket. They’ll be drunk off of Jameson and High Lifes, and those steel bikes hurt when it comes to head on collisions.
