    He was such a brilliant man who had such revealing insights into the human condition.

    Very beautiful. This is a gift to us. Thanks for posting this! There is a really cool interview on C-SPAN on Vonnegut, and Heller: Battle of the Bulge and V-E Day. Interviewed by Stephen Ambrose. Stay safe peoples, and wear a mask (unless your drinking and bowling).

      Vonnegut: I have no name for it, and I hope nobody else comes up with one...
