Of course most everyone has heard that Kurt Vonnegut died yesterday from complications surrounding a brain injury he received from a fall several weeks ago. It’s being well covered just about everywhere, so I won’t rehash all the articles that already exist. I would, however, like to pay tribute to the American author, so I will just write this.
Many consider him to be among the best authors that have ever lived, but even those who don’t feel so strongly are challenged to point to any who wrote in the genre of satire better than Vonnegut. Being a fan of satire, I count myself among those who treasure his work and find it to be among the best I have ever read. I will further honor him by not using semicolons.
First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are trans-vestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college.
