Kurt is up in heaven now.

For those of you who have not read Kurt Vonnegut's "A Man Without a Country", you may not know that this is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest authors of our time (IMHO). It is one of Kurt's favorite jokes, he's a humanist, its what he wanted people to say about him after he passed.

I saw Kurt Vonnegut speak at a seminar in Minneapolis when I was still in college at Winona State University. I'd have to say he was not a fan of technology and made me squirm more than once as I sat with my buddy Ann. Still, he always had great, provocative, interesting, and blackly funny things to say and comment on.

I have a picture above my foos ball table at home, it is a print from Mr. Vonnegut, it reads "Goodbye Blue Monday", its signed by Mr. Vonnegut.

Here is the obituary Writer Kurt Vonnegut, Voice of U.S. Counterculture, Dies in the Washington Post.

To use the phrase that is being passed around the web that Kurt used in Slaughterhouse-Five:

"So it goes."
