QotD: Going for Broke

If you lost your job today and were forced to go on an extremely strict budget, what one indulgence would be the hardest to give up?

hookers and blow

Anything you'd find a way to continue splurging on from time to time?

that's what unemployment is for, son

QotD: RIP J.D. Salinger

J.D. Salinger died this week at the age of 91. How many times have you read Catcher in the Rye? How did it impact your life? 

y'all know how much I dislike the QotD, but today it serves a purpose

among the avalanche of JDS obits, memories, remembrances, etc. I'll say this:  I read "Catcher , didn't relate to it at all,  found Holden annoying and whiny.  the Glass family stories are interesting. 

yet I got to tip my hat to JDS – when he ran out of things to say, he shut up.

may all of us be that smart

I ain't clicking on the link, but the wording is rather Big Brotherish.   and for the record, AllState the company is teh suck.

edit:  apparently we are all seeing different ads on the VOX homepage.  to clarify, this is what I see:
