Recurring Decimals…..

Everything here is irrelevant

RIP Vonnegut

with one comment

Brilliant satirist, unabashed war-protestor, humanist and one of my favorite writers, Kurt Vonnegut Jr.,passed away last night.

Here is an obituary in Salon and an extensive one in New York Times. Here is a video of his appearance on The Daily Show almost two years ago. He was about to read a list on that interview when they had to stop. But Jon Stewart put it on the web-site (via):


Give us this day our daily bread. Oh sure.

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Nobody better trespass against me. I’ll tell you that.

Blessed are the meek.

Blessed are the merciful. You mean we can’t use torture?

Blessed are the peacemakers. Jane Fonda?

Love your enemies – Arabs?

Ye cannot serve God and Mammon. The hell I can’t! Look at the Reverand Pat Robertson. And He is as happy as a pig in s**t.

………."And so it goes"……….
