Good bye


Kurt Vonnegut ~November 11, 1922-April 11, 2007. Perhaps the great Kurt Vonnegut now knows the answer to the biggest question there is. I only hope he hears jazz.

That's a perfect epitaph, Actonbell, thanks. I'm a little traumatized by his passing, I'll admit. He's been a hero of mine for a quarter century. That I can even talk about a quarter century is a barnacle trauma.

Yes, great epitaph. Thanks for the link!

Paul Simon should write a "So Long Kurt Vonnegut," song.

Thanks for the link. Kurt Vonnegut has been a favorite of mind for a quarter century or so too. Doug, don't worry it's beginning to just roll off the tongue - a quarter century (ay).

What an original indeed.

I have to admit that I am still fairly new to this writer, but I did purchase two books that will be read now. Besides, I have a quarter of a century to catch up on :)

RIP
