    Both of which happen in the text. He's in an institution to begin and end the novel implying medication and he's "sincerely" beaten up by Stradlater in the first few chapters.

    From the Onion:

    Bunch Of Phonies Mourn J.D. Salinger

    In this big dramatic production that didn't do anyone any good (and was pretty embarrassing, really, if you think about it), thousands upon thousands of phonies across the country mourned the death of author J.D. Salinger, who was 91 years old for crying out loud. "He had a real impact on the literary world and on millions of readers," said hot-shot English professor David Clarke, who is just like the rest of them, and even works at one of those crumby schools that rich people send their kids to so they don't have to look at them for four years. "There will never be another voice like his." Which is exactly the lousy kind of goddamn thing that people say, because really it could mean lots of things, or nothing at all even, and it's just a perfect example of why you should never tell anybody anything.

    I have a quote from the book on my cabinet doors of book/comic/notable quotations, of something about having goals in life (isn't that non-Alanis ironic, considering the protagonist?), but that's about the end of my enjoyment of it.

    I also read that the little person who was that psychic from Poltergeist (and some of its sequels) passed away. Can't recall her name right now.

    [edit] But a quick search brought up Zelda Rubinstein.

    Not to be a trouble maker but ace reporter and moderator Lord Malakite had that one covered. BCJ still gets extra credit though for his diligence.

    Since film titles should be either italicized or underlined, I blame that for why I missed it. No BSLOS for grammatical errors.

    It isn't a grammatical error, its my unique stylistic choice to be different. I'm allowed to do such things for getting a bachelor's degree in creative writing.

    Just to prove it, here is another recent death. And I shall do it in a style that should, seeing as you are a teacher, drive you nutty Bel-Cam.

    Now, how's THAT for creative license?

    Being related to Slicker's mom isn't something to brag about Bel-Cam.
