Kurt Vonnegut: (1922-2007) R.I.P.

Still and all, why bother? Here's my answer. Many people need desperately to receive this message: I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone. --Kurt Vonnegut--

Reading Slaughterhouse 5 was the first time I can recall as a kid thinking that adults can be really cool too. Vonnegut is going to be one of those authors that people still read 100 years from now. His lack of pretention, and his humanity is part of what made him so special. R.I.P.
