Okay... now tell me I'm not crazy but there is/has been cover art for JD Salinger's Catcher in the Rye, right?

And this is it?

Please tell me this is not a figment of my imagination, this is real, this was a cover used for Catcher in the Rye and I'm not a crazy person.

I've seen that. Why would you think someone made that as a fake cover?

that was the original HC cover from the 50s, yes. it was replaced by the maroon cover with yellow letters.

I'm in a class, some BS Education class about "Literacy in the Classroom." The professor is a complete fucking moron.

This is an exact quote from her, heard not 15 minutes ago.

"Did you know that no edition of Catcher in the Rye has never had any cover art, JD Salinger has never allowed it..."

I heard this, looked that up, needed to confirm that she's an idiot and I'm not crazy.

Here's two previous quotes that exemplify this professors monumental stupidity:

"Adolf Hitler was half Jewish, his mother was Jewish."

and

"The pilot of the Enola Gay is currently in a mental asylum."

It's funny - teachers have always spouted off nonsense but now, thanks to the internet, you can really call them on it. Those Hitler and Enola Gay facts sound like something from an e-mail that gets passed from idiot to idiot until someone thinks they're true. Your teacher should be pointed to snopes.com

You should know better than to trust the educational system! :no:
