another bit of sad news came this week: the death of jd salinger.  i immediately thought of the onion, who just ran an obit:

“Bunch of Phonies Mourn J.D. Salinger”

but the news made me think of this gem:

“Search For Self Called Off After 38 Years”

The search initially showed great promise, with Speth’s early discovery of his uncle’s old Doors records and a copy of The Catcher In The Rye. Over the next two decades, however, the “leads just petered out.”
