He had stong ties to Massachusetts, including being the first person to open a SAAB dealership here. He was a pretty cool guy.

Very sad. I really like Slaughterhouse Five. He was a great talent. His son Mark wrote a pretty cool memoir too.

I read all the Vonnegut I could get my hands on when I was in HS - to this day, for me, Slaughterhouse Five remains the consummate book on the futility and waste of war

Silly me thought Slaughterhouse-Five was a horror story ala Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Now I know better and added it to my reading list. Rest in peace Sweet Prince.
