    With the death of J.D. Salinger this week, it's a little surprising that there is no mention in the forums here about the contributions of his work 'The Catcher in the Rye' or 'The Laughing Man' to the plot of GiTS:SAC. Wikipedia has an interesting (if incomplete) article about 'The Laughing Man'; didn't know that there was a work by Salinger titled this, and how it shaped the character of Aoi.
