Salinger Quote

Chez at the blog Deus Ex Malcontent posted this utterly fantastic quote from the late J.D. Salinger.....

"I hope to hell that when I do die somebody has the sense to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetery. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you're dead? Nobody."

Well said sir, well said. Couldn't agree more.
