.....RIP Peter Benchley:

"Even before it was published, 'Jaws,' Mr. Benchley's first novel, was becoming a sensation as word trickled out of the publishing business that a blockbuster story was on the way. Movie rights were bought up, magazine articles commissioned, and the great white shark was thrust into the spotlight in a way that foreshadowed the current national obsession with 'The Da Vinci Code.'"
