As if Our Educational System Isn't Already One Great Big Holden Caulfield Pageant...

LUCKY for little Ursinus College that Mark David Chapman is securely locked away, or the J.D. Salinger-obsessed John Lennon slayer might be applying for the liberal arts college's new scholarship award. The Collegeville, Penn., school - where Salinger spent his fall 1938 semester - is offering the "Catcher in the Rye" scribe's old dorm room (nestled in a fieldstone residence hall overlooking 165 wooded acres) - and $25,000 to a senior high school student. Ursinus English profs want high school teachers and guidance counselors to nominate a creative writing student who fits the bill as a "quirky kid with unique vision."

On my way to the Ursinus school, the goddamn gladstones banging the hell out of my legs, and with that crazy hunting cap on, (turned backwards the way I like it) I didn't give a damn how I looked. And all.
