Kurt Vonnegut: 1922 - 2007

November 11, 1922 - April 11, 2007


"To whom it may concern: It is springtime.
It is late afternoon."

"True terror is to wake up one morning and discover
that your high school class is running the country.
"

***

"By saying that our leaders are power-drunk chimpanzees,
am I in danger of wrecking the morale of our soldiers
fighting and dying in the Middle East? Their morale,
like so many bodies, is already shot to pieces.
They are being treated, as I never was,
like toys a rich kid got for Christmas in December."
