RIP Howard Zinn and JD Salinger

A reminder of the importance of reading, especially more than 140 words at a time. If you have never read anything from Professor Zinn, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with his works. RIP to a true American hero.

We also lost JD Salinger today. A great American author and inspiration for multiple generations of disaffected antiheroes. Salinger wrote two of my all-time favorite works - The Catcher in the Rye and Franny and Zooey. A non-phony 'til the end.
