Kilgore Trout, R.I.P.


There are few human beings that make me proud to be a member of the same species. The foremost among them died today.

Kurt Vonnegut is in heaven now*, and the world is a little sadder, and darker, and things make a little less sense.





*If you don't know the quote, don't bother telling me about his humanism/atheism.
