Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007.

Damn it. Kurt Vonnegut passed away this evening.

I wish I had the time to write a proper memorium here, reminiscing about how much I enjoyed his writing when I was in high school and college. For now, though, I'll simply say that I can't believe that he's gone. Damn.

The New York Times piece includes a quote that pretty much sums up why I loved Vonnegut:

There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — ‘God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.’

That pretty much sums it up right there. Rest in peace, sir.
