Today's thoughtful moment

Kurt Vonnegut died last night, so in his memory everyone go forth and read one of his novels, short stories, or essays. Your brain will thank you.

"And I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.'"
Kurt Vonnegut In These Times (2003)

Very sad, I heard this on NPR this morning! Yes, in his honor I think I need to dig out one of the old paperbacks and enjoy.

nice quote, btw.

I was in Borders the other day and there was a display listing his birth to death (2007), I was shocked and horrified he was dead, what a bad way to get the news! I'm glad someone else was saddened as well.
