Kurt Vonnegut dies

Kurt Vonnegut, the amazingly comic and frequently satirical writer, who wrote against the wars and the mindless human technological pursuits, famous for classics like “Slaughterhouse-Five” and “Cat’s Cradle”, died yesterday at the age of 84.

In the times of Bush we loose an important moralist like Kurt. Sigh.

Here’s NYT ‘s piece on him.
