JD Salinger Rises From Literary Hell Not to Publish but to Sue

So, JD Salinger, who doesn't have enough guts to publish anything in oh...a very long time, decides to poke his head up and sue becuase some bozo named JD California from Sweden is publishing a book with Salinger's character, Holden Caulfield, in it.
Whatever, man.  I don't see the big deal.  It sounds to me like Salinger, once again, is taking himself too seriously.  Yes, The Cathcer in the Rye is brilliant.  Yes, I, like everyone else, is one of my favorite books of all time, but the best thing it's known for is screwing with Mark Chapman's head.
Get over it, JD.  How good were you really?  I mean, Kurt Vonnegut wrote up until the day he died.  So did Updike.  Even Pynchon will at least publish once in a while.  You?  You jsut bug people by not sharing your genius.  Well, maybe you weren't a genius to begin with and at least this JD California idiot sounds like fun.
Read the CNN article here, folks.
