Kurt Vonnegut died yesterday, according to Wikipedia “after a fall several weeks prior resulted in irreversible brain injuries.” I’ve got a copy of Slaughterhouse Five which I never finished reading. I think I was 14 when I bought it and somehow didn’t get the point of it. Maybe this would be a good time to try again.
If I ever stop coughing the stuff I am coughing right now, that is. I’ve got a fully-fledged flu now, although I got the flu shot.
