Quote of the Day: June 6, 2009: For Esme ....

We are all tremendously excited and overawed about D Day and only hope that it will bring about the swift termination of the war and a method of existence that is ridiculous to say the least. Charles and I are both quite concerned about you; we hope you were not among those who made the first initial assault upon the Cotentin Peninsula.
J.D. Salinger, "For Esme - With Love and Squalor." in Nine Stories. New York: Bantam Books, 1983. p.113.
