Read the comments at The Guardian to begin to understand how much we’ve lost…

    he had some kind of Secret.
    Yossarian knew his secret.

    Good morning Ryan,

    It’s good to know that someone is still occasionally stopping in. Thank you.

    “I’m cold.” Snowden whimpered, “I’m cold.”

    “There, there. Yossarian mumbled mechanically in a voice too low to be heard. “There, there.”

    Yossarian was cold, too, and shivering uncontrollable. He felt goose pimples clacking all over him as he gazed down despondently at the grim secret Snowden had spilled all over the messy floor. It was easy to read the message in his entrails. Man was matter, that was Snowden’s secret. Drop him out a window and he’ll fall. Set fire to him and he’ll burn. Bury him and he’ll rot, like other kinds of garbage. The spirit gone, man is garbage. That was Snowden’s secret. Ripeness was all.

    “I’m cold,” Snowden said. “I’m cold.”

    “There, there,” said Yossarian. “There, there,” He pulled the rip cord of Snowden’s parachute and covered his body with the white nylon sheets.

    “I’m cold.”

    “There, there.”

    Catch-22, Chapter 41

    Do all you can to make today a good day,

    Jeff
