Kurt Vonnegut - Dead at 84

One of my favorite writers has died...
It's rather sad because I'm reading one of his works right now.
Vonnegut once said that, of all the ways to die, he would prefer to go out in an airplane crash on the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro.
He often joked about the difficulties of old age, saying in an interview with the Associated Press in 2005 that "when Hemingway killed himself he put a period at the end of his life; old age is more like a semicolon."

... and anyone that read Vonnegut KNOWS that he hates semicolons.
Good bye kind Kurt.

Visit a previous blog to watch a video that breaks down his latest book, "Man Without A Country".
