Off-Topic: More Bad News

It appears that Kurt Vonnegut has died.

I mention this because there are only 5 or 6 authors whom I really in my greatest moments of hubris like to think that I can count as influences.

Kurt Vonnegut was on the list, a solid #3.

If there's an afterlife, I'm sure he wasted no time checking into the hotel and is even now looking down on us and laughing his guts out at us.

RIP, Kurt.

More on this later.

Yeah, it's a bugger and no mistake. But one gets the feeling he's okay, flipping backwards and forwards in time or some such.

Depressed I am, though it's a comfort knowing ole Kurt is likely chillin with the big guy upstairs and giving Will Shakespeare a hard time.

He's my favorite author of all time, but I take comfort that he left tracks in this world and in our heads.
