Good night, sweet prince...

Vonnegut spoke truth to American power and encouraged others to do the same. And he did it with an uncanny, gentle smile. He was fearless and funny, in the vein of Mark Twain, and among a long line of satirists, who help us see the world anew and remind us that nothing is as serious as life. And as a writer, his influence not only came from his world view but from his style as a collagist. He had a way of putting the pieces together.
From The Kansas City Star.

Personal stuff later.



Vonnegut said something like, "Life is for farting around." This, from a man that survived Dresden. Makes me think every time.
