RIP Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut was my introduction to satire.  His works were startling, funny and sad all at the same time.  A lot like real life.  Vonnegut had a huge impact on me in my teens and after, a constant reminder to question everything and take nothing for granted. 

On a family note:

Vonnegut, who had homes in Manhattan and the Hamptons in New York, adopted his sister's three young children after she died. He also had three children of his own with his first wife, Ann Cox, and later adopted a daughter, Lily, with his second wife, the noted photographer Jill Krementz.
