Fare Thee Well, Kurt Vonnegut

American Author Kurt Vonnegut has died at age 84. I don't remember how I came to read Slaughterhouse Five in the 9th grade - it was definitely not part of the curriculum, but the high school had a great libary. I snickered through Breakfast of Champions during band practice and Cat's Cradle during debate practice. Hmm, when I read that I realize that Mr. Vonnegut was busy writing about the end of the world and I was in full dork mode.

You shall be missed sir. Fare thee well.
