so it goes
the washington post interviews kurt vonnegut: he's old, he's salty, he wants to sue the cigarette industry for not killing him yet. i secretly love curmudgeons. god knows i know enough of them.
i took a twain/vonnegut class in college and my vonnegut books ended up being over-underlined (and i was pleasantly surprised to learn that mark twain actually wasn't as boring as i had expected). welcome to the monkey house is still my favorite collection; i have read it probably four times since i bought a used copy from the 70s at a book drive when i was 19.
i can't believe he's still alive, and he can't either.
