Happy Birthday, Mr. Vonnegut

Today is the 82nd birthday of one of my all-time favorite authors, Kurt Vonnegut.

One of my very favorite Vonnegut quotes, from God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater:

Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies: Goddammit, you've got to be kind.

Here's wishing Mr. Vonnegut love and kindness and happy days ahead.
