    I was given cat's cradle as something to read while visiting my father in rehab when I was 11. Be it Vonnegut the man or Vonnegut the author, his ability to speak of horror with candor showed me how to shrug things off without discounting their importance, all while remaining kind and funny.

    The man did more for me in that one book than any other adult in my childhood.

    Pretty much everything that ever fell from his pen is a treasure from a mind better than mine.

    Thanks for reviewing the biographies.

    We keep electing whores to congress, and we wonder why we get screwed while the money flows to their pimps.
