    I am saddened to learn of his passing, even after 103 years. He was a gifted novelist.

    Wow he's one of those I figured was long gone.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Yeah, it never would have occurred to me. He valued his privacy, apparently, and it worked.

    He reportedly was working on another novel, dying just a few days shy of his 104th birthday. By all accounts he lived an amazingly productive life.
