Kurt Vonnegut will be missed

"Here's what I think the truth is: We are all addicts of fossil fuels in a state of denial, about to face cold turkey. And like so many addicts about to face cold turkey, our leaders are now committing violent crimes to get what little is left of what we're hooked on." (Kurt Vonnegut, 2004)

As the recipient of a BA in English (summa cum laude, University of Massachusetts, Boston), my humble opinion is that Vonnegut was the greatest writer to not receive the Nobel Prize in literature.

Perhaps posthumously? Have they ever done that? He would be deserving.
