The Passing of Another Great

Two-time Pulitzer Prize winning author John Updike died today at the age of 76. According to Alfred A. Knopf Inc., Updike's publisher, Mr. Updike, who was a long time residence of Beverly Farms, died at an area hospice of lung cancer.

This is yet another loss to the literary world, coming so close to the death of Donald Westlake.

It's so sad to see that we are losing so many great writers in such a small amount of time.

let's just hope that this will be it for awhile. So we can make that word "lost" instead of "losing".
