When I checked the celebrity blogs I stalk today, I was met with an extra ounce of sadness and tragedy. This started with a news-tweet from CNN about J.D. Salinger's passing. Then I found stories on jailtime, show cancellations, grief, and others. I don't mean to be a downer but sometimes, we need to read these to realize that life is short and we have to seize every opportunity and hold close those dear to us.
1. J.D. Salinger Passes at Age 91
The famous recluse writer, J.D Salinger, has finally found the best way for people to leave him alone. Unless there are diehard fans in the next life who would wish to bother him. But I hope there are none. For someone as talented as he was, I wish him eternal peace to do what he loves best: writing.
