Kurt Vonnegut Dies At 84

The man whose books were always a source for me of endless moral and philosophical discussions died last night. Kurt Vonnegut, author of "Slaughterhouse Five" and most recently "Man Without A Country", was 84 years old. His books conveyed a comedic look at very serious questions and his wit was always tempered by a serious desire to make America a better place.

His interview on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is classic Vonnegut. He skewers Bush with a compliment, "He’s not the dumbest man in our government." It is a must see.
