Vonnegut is gone

Kurt Vonnegut, the great American satirical novelist, died on Wednesday at the age of 84 as a result of head injuries sustained in a fall at his home in New York last week. Kurt Vonnegut was born to German-American parents on November 11, 1922, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

He was known for a sharp sense of humor and an equally sharp awareness of the depth of human tragedy.

I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around, and don't let anybody tell you different.
