Jessica - great eulogy.

My sadness at Mr. Vonnegut's death reminds me of when Shel Silverstein died... another literary genius whose comments on the human condition were unique, sublime and right on the money.

KG said...

This is my favourite Vonnegut-quote:

While there is a lower class I am in it, while there is a criminal element I am of it; while there is a soul in prison, I am not free. (Timequake)

Thanks Mr. Vonnegut
