So it Goes

R.I.P. Kurt Vonnegut.

From Backwards City, a few quotes:

"Here's the news: I'm going to sue the Brown & Williamson Tobacco Company, manufacturers of Pall Mall cigarettes, for a billion bucks! Starting when I was only twelve years old, I have never smoked anything but unfiltered Pall Malls. And for many years now, right on the package, Brown and Williamson have promised to kill me. But now I am eighty-two. Thanks a lot, you dirty rats."
— Kurt Vonnegut

“If I should ever die, God forbid, let this be my epitaph: The only proof he needed for the existence of God was music."
— Kurt Vonnegut

"And if I should ever die, God forbid, I hope you will say, 'Kurt is up in heaven now.' That's my favorite joke."
— Kurt Vonnegut

I've been trying to come up with something witty or interesting to say about this all day, but I've got nothing.

I've never met the man but I feel like I've lost a family member. Not an immediate family member, like a brother, but a cousin who I really liked a lot.
