You and Occam are on the same wavelength apparently. Never read this author.

I hadn't heard about this yet. Sad news. I read Slaughterhouse Five in high school.

Princess,

Kurt dies.....no wonder I've been feeling blue instead of my usual bouncy red self....I've always loved Kurt.....some thought his view of American life was skewed....it always appeared upright to me.....ok, maybe side-wise at times....Galapagos was one of my favorites....Breakfast of Champions....thank you for the memorial....you remind me that I should get out of my red dirt box a little more often...

regards,
red dirt girl
