    It's sad, for sure, but he's been out of the public eye for decades. The guy really, REALLY, liked his privacy.

    A fitting obit from the Onion

    Bunch Of Phonies Mourn J.D. Salinger
    "CORNISH, NH—In this big dramatic production that didn't do anyone any good (and was pretty embarrassing, really, if you think about it), thousands upon thousands of phonies across the country mourned the death of author J.D. Salinger, who was 91 years old for crying out loud. "He had a real impact on the literary world and on millions of readers," said hot-shot English professor David Clarke, who is just like the rest of them, and even works at one of those crumby schools that rich people send their kids to so they don't have to look at them for four years. "There will never be another voice like his." Which is exactly the lousy kind of goddamn thing that people say, because really it could mean lots of things, or nothing at all even, and it's just a perfect example of why you should never tell anybody anything."

    The main question is, did he hide a bunch of books in a safe deposit box, and will we get to read them now?

    someone, somewhere, is going to say "this is the end of an era".... even though the guy just wrote one book of any repute

    I will bet my threadbare undercrackers on it....

    I read Catcher once, and my thoughts to this day are still "meh".
