In Loving Memory of Kilgore Trout

Kurt Vonnegut dies at 84. God Bless You, Mr Vonnegut.

addendum: when I was 11 or 12, I made a shirt (using an El Marko permanent marker) that said "I love Kurt Vonnegut, Jr." It runs that deep. The first Kurt Vonnegut book I read was Cat's Cradle and that's remained a favorite book since. My favorite of all is certainly Slaughterhouse 5, although I have always had "Welcome to the Monkey House" close to my heart as well.

Just by chance, I'm in the middle of Mother Night for the second time.

This affects me more than any 'celebrity' death ever has. His books are very important to me.
