No respect for the deceased

28 Jan 2010

As has been widely reported, author J.D. Salinger passed away yesterday at his home in the great state of New Hampshire, at the age of 91. Best known for his 1951 novel The Catcher in the Rye, Salinger was also known for his reclusiveness.

Unfortunately the respect that Salinger has garnered for his work didn’t extend to the chuckleheads that edit Wikipedia. This afternoon his entry read simply “He dead.”
