I doubt I'm the only one around here who admired Kurt Vonnegut and hates to see him go.

Yeah, I thought about him all day yesterday. He had a remarkable and long life.
One of my favorite SH5 lines:

"I could carve a better man out of a banana."

LOL

He had a good long life, but still sad to see him go.

Agreed. I never read past SH5, but maybe I will pick up his most recent works, especially the existential one that involves conversations with the dead.

Here's a nice interview with him on McSweeney's. Don't know when it's from. http://www.mcsweeney...12vonnegut.html

I was pleased to find out that one of my most often used quotes was his:

Be careful what you pretend to be because you are what you pretend to be.
