R.I.P. Kurt Vonnegut

Acclaimed author of Slaughterhouse Five, Cat's Cradle, etc. died at 84 from complications from a fall - specifically a brain injury.

Anyone else read his books?

I have read several of his books. He was a great author, some of my favorite reads.

I'm really sad he's gone. He's one of the best writers of our generation, one of my anti-war heroes. Here's one of my favourite verses from him:

"We do, dodilly do, dodilly do, dodilly do.
We must, muddily must, muddily must, muddily must.
We bust, bodily bust, bodily bust, bodily bust."

Pretty much sums up life, well, at least mine...

I hope people will continue to read him, he's left behind an incredible body of work...
