RE: Ham, Rye & Watermelons
I actually never read Catcher in the Rye, but meant to. What you critiqued the book on sounded like one of the most well known critiques of the book. I think, if I remember correctly that the book was about saving innocence. So the reason some people might have had the book when they did unspeakable things (there are a few famous times if I remember correctly) is because they are trying to be the "catcher in the rye" in that they are trying to preserve the innocence of the youth or something.

There was another book that I did read... uh, can't remember the name, but apparently caused people to burn down churches and it talked a lot about the bourgeois and I think the title reminded me of Wolfenstien for some reason. Either way, didn't make me want to burn down a church. I'm sure there was more to it as well (that was probably lost in translation), but didn't much care for it.

A theist and an atheist go to heaven.
theist: "See! There is a heaven."
atheist: "So, you consider heaven a joke too?"
