http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/11/books/11cnd-vonnegut.html?pagewanted=2&hp it was a pleasure to read you. thanks for introducing me to the world of ideas when i was just a young boy. from cat's cradle "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. and from man without a country (a really stirring and emotional read) "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."
