RIP: Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "In A Man Without a Country, he wrote that 'George W. Bush has gathered around him upper-crust C-students who know no history or geography.' He did not regard the 2004 election with much optimism; speaking of Bush and John Kerry, he said that 'no matter which one wins, we will have a Skull and Bones President at a time when entire vertebrate species, because of how we have poisoned the topsoil, the waters and the atmosphere, are becoming, hey presto, nothing but skulls and bones.'[18]

. it's not surprising that he disdains everything about the Iraq War. The very notion that more than 2,500 U.S. soldiers have been killed in what he sees as an unnecessary conflict makes him groan. 'Honestly, I wish Nixon were president,' Vonnegut laments. 'Bush is so ignorant.' "[5]"
