RIP John Updike


Jesus. What have I been saying, lately with respect to Donald Westlake (click here for 1/6 post): about how the giants die? Read just a thumbnail bio here.
And Tyler Perry, Sistah Soulja, Stephanie Meyer, Karrine Stephens, Mitch Albom, Nicholas Sparks & Ann Coulter and on and on...will likely live forever. I should email Walter Mosely and remind him to watch his diet, get a colonoscopy, avoid USAIR flights out of La Guardia, avoid West Philly and peanut butter from Thailand, because I can't take this crap any more...

I LOVE Mitch Albon but I understand your point. Please take it to heart that John Updike will be honored in that place where your "giants" live forever.

It was bound to happen. People get old, people get sick. However the work is immortal, right?

Why am I giving YOU a pep talk, Nat Turner?!

It is a shame, but people get old and people die. At least he will live forwever through his works

Pebbles repeats what @carl wrote because that's a sentiment that is universal.
