So It Goes

Kurt Vonnegut died last night at the age of 84. Here's an excerpt from a poem of his called "Requiem":

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


from the floor

of the Grand Canyon,

“It is done.”

People did not like it here.

R.I.P., Mr. Vonnegut.

I'm very sad to hear that. I read all his books when I was in high school, and really liked him. It's sad that Imus gets all this attention while an influential writer like this gets relatively so little.
With CBS firing Imus tonight, the story only has one more day to go before it will fade.
