We hear a lot about Kurt’s son, Dr. Mark Vonnegut. That’s him on the right, next to his father (of course).
"He couldn’t help thinking that all that money we were spending blowing up things and killing people so far away, making people the world over hate and fear us, would have been better spent on public education and libraries. It’s hard to imagine that history won’t prove him right, if it hasn’t already."
"The world is slightly a different place just because they read a damn book. Imagine that."

I guess it’s a Mark Vonnegut kind of day today.
