"I don't really deeply feel that anyone needs an airtight reason for quoting from the works of writers he loves...

...but it's always nice, I'll grant you, if he has one." [J.D. Salinger]

So here's another quote from Mr. Salinger, whom I may or may not love but definitely respect, followed by my reason for quoting him.

“'I'm just going through a phase right now. Everybody goes through phases and all, don't they?”

It's been over a week since his death [check out how The Onion feels about it], but that statement ties in nicely with my previously posted short story--WHICH I have recently revised and reposted. So GO READ IT! by clicking HERE and tell me what you think.

I also have to write an essay on "The Best food/movie/song/moment/passage of literature According to Me" for Film and Literature. I'm pretty sure I'll be writing about fiori di zucca fritti [fried zucchini blossoms] because a) they're Italian and specifically Roman, b) they're flowers that you eat, and c) they're deep fried and filled with cheese.
