A word from Holden Caulfield

“Life is a game, boy. Life is a game that one plays by the rules.”

“Yes, sir. I know it is. I know it.”

Game, my ass. Some game. If you get on the side where all the hotshots are, then it’s a game, all right–I’ll admit that. But if you get on the other side, where there aren’t any hotshots, then what’s a game about it? Nothing. No game.

–J.D. SALINGER (The Catcher in the Rye)

    Hey hey! It seems you have replied to one of my posts and for that, I thank you! I didn’t think anyone read that shit anyway. So I checked out your site and realized a few things…

    One…I need to read The Catcher in the Rye again.

    Two…You know how to write.

    Three…I do not have enough time to read as much as I would like right now, so I will be back and read the rest. All of it.

    Hope all is well in Washington.

    Better than checking my site every 10 minutes to see if anyone left me a comment, you mean?

    Pah.

    An email is forthcoming.

    Dude, props on the e-mack there Sean. I seriously need to master the transcontinental game-spit. Not to discredit what you’re saying, though, because you’re certainly correct in saying that Thea is a very compelling and well spoken author. I just had to do the brotherly thing and call you on it.
