Perhaps a strange source for this news, but I am honestly saddened to hear that Kurt Vonnegut died last night. He wrote some fantastic books, and some equally (perhaps even more so) fantastic short stories. I highly recommend that anyone who reads this should go out and find something he wrote and read it. Cat’s Cradle was one of my favorites.
My source for this news, noted above, linked to this article, which is a nice read.
