    If you're ever in the mood for a witty read, let your eyes absorb a few photons reflected off a Vonnegut novel.

    I've read "Cat's Cradle," "Slaughterhouse-Five," and "Timequake." Usually when I find an author I enjoy, I read all that they wrote. In the case of Vonnegut, I try to save them... reading only enough to keep myself stimulated. It's kind of like waiting until the last minute to open your birthday present. I'll read one of his novels every few years or so, so that when I'm an old man, I can still have one or two left to enjoy for the first time. Now that he's gone, there'll be no new Vonnegut novels.

    Here's the obituary:

    Cheers,

    Perhaps if his soul intercepts a chronosynclastic infundibulum there is still hope.
