Herman Wouk dead at 103

Lt. Cdr. Phillip Francis Queeg, USN
(played by Humphrey Bogart)
Herman Wouk, who wrote perhaps the greatest military justice-related work of fiction ever -- The Caine Mutiny -- has died. He was 103 years of age. Here is the Washington Post obituary by Becky Krystal. William Grimes's obit in The New York Times is available here.

This might be a good time to see the film again.
