Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007
"Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the
winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about
a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies – `God damn
it, you’ve got to be kind.’ "
I was huge Kurt Vonnegut fan in high school and college. I devoured most of his novels: Slaughterhouse-Five, Cat’s Cradle, Player Piano, Sirens of Titan, Mother Night, Galapagos, Breakfast of Champions.
