On Vox: So it goes.

RIP Kurt Vonnegut.  I didn't read Slaughterhouse-Five until I was an adult.  Maybe that was for the better.  The book left a permanent impression, and I better appreciated the choruses and the "plant-connect" analogies while I was reading it.

Kurt raised my awareness of the Dresden bombings the way Isao Takahata did so of the Tokyo fire bombings.

Thanks, Kurt.  Your work was special and continues to affect us.
