Kurt Vonnegut is 83 today. He's been on my mind lately in part because this week I'm teaching Galapagos
in class, which is one of his most unfairly underappreciated novels, and which I've really been enjoying rereading.
It's gonna be a sad day when he finally does climb up that long blue tunnel into the Afterlife. Let's hope it's a long way off. Let's hope I didn't just jinx it.
