I know you're all wrapped up in arguments right now, but I thought that I
should say something about what I found before the joy of having a
contribution after so long withers.

People around Columbus (near my college) were interested in the idea that
Chicago had with the whole city reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" (like Seattle
doing "A Lesson Before Dying" and Cleveland the poetry of Langston Hughes). A
journalist for the "Columbus Dispatch" asked people, mainly local students
what they thought Columbus' book should be if this idea went off the ground.

Our J.D. was mentioned by a man in Decatur, Illinois.

"'The Catcher in the Rye,' J.D. Salinger: 'Maybe society is grown-up enough by
now to get past the fact that Salinger's narrator is fond of expletives.
Maybe, as a whole, we can finally recognize Holden Caulfield in his quest for
purity.' --Zachary Shileds, Decatur, Ill."

Thanks for listening. As you were.
