Cold turkey

Wednesday 19 May 2004

Kurt Vonnegut is still writing his minimalist maximal rants. His latest is Cold Turkey. It's more than a bit hyperbolic, but much of his writing is. He mentions again what I think is his greatest quote (which he attributes to his son):

We are here to help each other through this thing, whatever it is.

It's simultaneously a simple directive about how to live, and an admission that we don't understand the big picture.
