    Kurt Vonnegut, my favorite author, whose book Mother Night has long provided me with a username, and insight into human failings despite best intentions, died last night. The New York Times carries the story here.

    Tiger got to hunt,
    Bird got to fly;
    Man got to sit and wonder, "Why, why, why?"

    Tiger got to sleep,
    Bird got to land;
    Man got to tell himself he understand.


    Goodnight Mr. Vonnegut.

    I'm about halfway through Mother Night right now. One of my all time favorite authors.

    So it goes.

    The Daily Show had a little thing at the end where Jon Stewart mentioned how much grayer the world is today because of his absence.
