So [He] Goes...

The esteemed author Kurt Vonnegut has died. Here, an excerpt from the UK's Guardian:


Perhaps I am too young to have fully grasped Vonnegut's influence, but can fully understand why today many are in mourning. It occurred to me as I read the headline this morning that all year as I've been giving presentations on the Stallings Collection at ISU, my power point presentation has ended with a quote from Vonnegut: "History is merely a list of surprises. It can only prepare us to be surprised yet again."
