Hello, Babies, and Good-bye to Kurt Vonnegut

'I think you guys are going to have to come up with a lot of wonderful new lies, or people just aren't going to want to go on living' - WonketteA great American humorist has died at 84. Kurt Vonnegut wrote so many brutal & crazy comedies about the United States. It is a tragedy how he didn’t become Pope of Culture in 1981, but we had some pretty serious budget cuts then and the Pope of Culture was eliminated in a firestorm of napalm.

Vonnegut lived about a dozen years longer than the average American male, due to his chain-smoking and rage and beach house. We will miss him.
