Happy birthday, Scott! 

F. Scott Fitzgerald would have turned 115 today. Had he not, you know, died in 1940 or any year since then.

He led a great literary life -- the Wikipedia entry is more entertaining than most things you will read today. Fellow Tigers will appreciate that he died making "notes in his newly arrived Princeton Alumni Weekly." Considering This Side of Paradise, a helluva fitting way to go.

Thanks for the tip--I just read Wikipedia on F Scott and learned a bunch. Ernest Heminway for a friend and Dorothy Parker crying at your funeral. Can't do much better than that!

Happy Birthday, Scott!
