Happy Williampeterblattyday

Today, Nic Cage is 48. Jeremy Renner is 41. Katie Couric is 55. Hell, Kenny Loggins even has a birthday today; he's 64. 

I choose to place William Peter Blatty in the birthday spotlight. Why? Because he wrote the scariest freakin' book and screenplay of all-time, that's why! 

Mr. Blatty, thank you for your magnum opus, The Exorcist. To this day, there's nothing scarier, hands down. 

By the way, happy 84th birthday. Still going strong. Good work, sir.
