Happy New Year, Slushpile readers. I hope everyone has had a safe and fun holiday season.
Meanwhile, let’s all wish J.D. Salinger a happy birthday. Yesterday, while we were taking down Christmas trees and nursing hangovers, Mr. Salinger turned 90. Let’s hope his new year’s resolution is to get out of the house a bit more in 2009.
