Author Kurt Vonnegut passed away last night in Manhattan at the age of 84. He had been hospitalized after a fall several weeks ago. Vonnegut published 14 novels in his lifetime, as well as three collections of short stories, five plays and five non-fiction books. He told Rolling Stone magazine last year: "I've been smoking Pall Mall unfiltered cigarettes since I was 12 or 14. So I'm going to sue the Brown & Williamson Tobacco Company, who manufactured them. And do you know why? Because I'm 83 years old. The lying bastards! On the package Brown & Williamson promised to kill me."

A fun movie written by Mr. Vonnegut "Who Am I This Time" is worth the watch.
