RIP Elmore Leonard

Sad to note that ELMORE LEONARD died today.  A famous American novelist, he had major contributions to both movies and television most notably (for me at least) being the inspiration for the FX series JUSTIFIED, as well as GET SHORTY, BE COOL, and JACKIE BROWN.

Elmore Leonard

Admittedly I have never read any of the man’s novels, but anybody who can bring us the life and times of Raylan Givens is pretty good in my book.
