Happy Birthday Myron

A gift to you from Kurt Vonnegut, who died yesterday:
When the last living thing

has died on account of us,

how poetical it would be

if Earth could say,

in a voice floating up

perhaps

from the floor

of the Grand Canyon,

"It is done."

People did not like it here.

Hey, I found this on the CEI website: http://www.openmarket.org/2007/04/12/kurt-vonnegut-rip/

Grossly overrated novelist Kurt Vonnegut Jr. died yesterday after a fall. I’ve never quite understood why a man of such modest talents received so much literary recognition and became so popular. Some obituaries say that he became the most read author on college campuses. I believe them. In many ways, Vonnegut was the campus Left’s answer to Ayn Rand: a competent novelist who came to take himself far too seriously and found plenty of acolytes willing to do the same.
