Kurt Vonnegut

First Sagan, then Vonnegut. Vonnegut hit me much harder than Sagan ever did. I guess that while I always thoroughly enjoyed Sagan, respected him, I connected more with the twistedly dark, yet hopeful, humor of Vonnegut.

It is strange thinking: no more. Strange, because, for no identifiable reason I find myself thinking that I have missed something. Maybe what I have lost is the hope of sitting down on some random park bench some beautiful afternoon and having my lanky seatmate state, all too superfluously (or not), "Isn’t this nice?"

I bet I would have laughed.
