And I say, "Hush."

You were all (all nine of you) waiting for me to say something about Vonnegut moving on, huh? I've posted about him a couple of times before.

I came to work this morning after being off sick for a few days, and stuck to my clipping of the "Technology and Me" bit was a note that said:

"So it goes."

Ah well, I really wonder what gives us the right to wreck this poor planet of ours too...

I was wondering if you'd mention KV. There's a wonderful interview he did with someone that was recently re-aired. I can't think of the interviewer, but he talked about the criticism of his later books, and how some critics tried to completely demolish all of his earlier work as well, in one fell swoop. But Cat's Cradle, Slaughterhouse Five, and Breakfast of Champions are all fine books.

But his social commentary is the very finest of his work, often tossed off in an offhand manner in interviews and articles.
