Maybe that Letters from JD salinger guy can help me here. There is/was an
internet sight with quotes from Catcher posted, (it was NOT the Holden
Server). It had a picture of a guy in a bathtub, smoking a cigar and smiling
while reading an original copy of Catcher in the Rye. The heading read; "If
Saligner has a problem with this website, Phooey!". It was very funny,
anyone else seen it? Also, can anyone on this list post another picture of
the gun (Ortigies?) used in APDFB? Just wondering.
