Tom Clancy, a celebrated author of crime fiction and military thrillers, died on Tuesday in a hospital in Baltimore. He was 66.

… may god bless you , Tom Clancy ! …

Ivan Held, the president of Putnam Books, Clancy’s publisher, confirmed his death to the New York Times, adding that Clancy “was a thrill to work with.” He did not provide a cause of death.

Clancy was born in Baltimore, Maryland on April 12, 1947. He is the author of the popular Jack Ryan series, among many others. His novels have repeatedly been #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list, and four of his books have been adapted for film, including his first, “The Hunt for Red October.” His latest book, “Command Authority,” is slated for publication this December.

Although most of his writing involved fictionalized accounts of the aftermath of the Cold War, Clancy has also penned a slew of nonfiction titles, including his “Guided Tours” inside nuclear warships and Air Force combat wings.

.. thank you , and may God Bless You Always !! ..

Watch this excert from the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” to see what I mean …

.. It is not that I am against the idea . To be honest , I am not  . Unfortunately , Edward Snowden let the cat out of the bag . It does not take a rocket scientist to make the leap of logic from the gathering of meta – data to the gathering of domestic intelligence .

.. Hell , everyone else on the planet does it . The British , the Russkies , and the Israelis are especially well – known for it . Given the intelligence threats that we face on a world wide scale , it would make sense to do it . Try to do a better job of keeping it secret , though . Also , do  not lie about it , if it is exposed . Our fellow citizens may not be wild about . I am not , either . But i understand the need for it .
