R.I.P. Tony Hillerman

Tony Hillerman, author of the acclaimed Navajo Tribal Police mystery novels and creator of two of the unlikeliest of literary heroes -- Navajo police officers Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee -- died Sunday of pulmonary failure. He was 83.

If you love mysteries and you haven't read this series, I highly recommend it. I'm so sad that we will never see another story about Leaphorn and Chee.

I was also saddened to learn that they think they've found Jennifer Hudson's nephew in an SUV, dead. That whole story is so tragic. I was stunned that gunfire is so common that no one even called the police when her mother and brother were killed.
