Submission + - Author Kurt Vonnegut Jr., 84, dies

SPK writes: "The NY Times, CNN, and other news sources are reporting that Kurt Vonnegut Jr, 84, died Wednesday. According to the NY Times: "Kurt Vonnegut, whose dark comic talent and urgent moral vision in novels like 'Slaughterhouse-Five,' 'Cat's Cradle' and 'God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater' caught the temper of his times and the imagination of a generation, died last night in Manhattan [...] Mr. Vonnegut suffered irreversible brain injuries as a result of a fall several weeks ago, according to his wife, Jill Krementz." He will be remembered not only as a great writer, but also as a staunch civil libertarian (long-term member of the ACLU) and as a "mainstream/literary" author who integrated science fiction concepts into his writing. So it goes."
