    Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord. (KJV)

    Rest in peace, dear creator of Holden Caulfield. I'm going to re-read The Catcher in the Rye in his honour.

    He wrote while in seclusion and I've always wondered if they would publish what he wrote posthumously. I'm sure he'd hate it if it were to be published, but I hope that someone does.

    "A Perfect Day for Bananafish" is one of the ten best short stories I've ever read.

    I agree, J. D was one of the best. I did think he was dead already too though.

    May he R.I.P.

    If only required high school reading contained more books like this, I might have read more. As it was, Cliff Notes was #2 on my list of favor high school books.....
