Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007)

The world has lost a great writer, satirist, humanist, and man. Kurt Vonnegut has died.
The writer of Slaughterhouse V and numerous others has left us, and probably in his opinion, not a day to soon.
But he left us his words.
In his last book, A Man Without a Country, he lamented the fact that the cigarette companies let him down by allowing him to live long enough to see the three most powerful men in the world be named Bush, Dick, and Colon.

He was a humanist and a religious skeptic. I wonder if he still is.

Mr. Vonnegut… you will be missed.
