RIP Kurt Vonnegut
"Slaughterhouse-Five" is a book I will never forget reading as a relatively little dude. One of those formative-years things, I think.
Not only was Vonnegut a poet, but he pissed off the Puritans on the Right. I mean, we all remember that scene in Footloose when Kevin Bacon gets berated because that little Bible-Belt, dance-hating town thinks the book is not a "classic" but "smut" (or something to that effect). Right?...Right?
Ok, I have seen 80s movies way too many times.
In any case, Vonnegut was a genius. And a progressive champion. He will be missed.
