Hammer Time Officially Ends

R.I.P. Mickey Spillane

Mickey Spillane, the macho mystery writer who wowed millions of readers with the sex and beat-’em-up, shoot-’em-up violence of gumshoe Mike Hammer, died yesterday. He was 88.

Author of the greatest closing line/comeback, ever, quoted by probably a bazillion people who never knew where it came from. It’s my automatic response when anyone gets outraged about something I’ve said or done and asks: “How could you?”

It was easy.

I can see him and Billy Martin banging back Miller Lites at Heaven’s Gates, giving St. Peter a thorough razzing while pitching their empties at him for refusing them entry.
