"A Man Without a Country"

<p>I just finished reading [lk:vonnegut.com|Kurt Vonnegurt's] [l:http://bookswelike.net/isbn/158322713X|Man Without A Country]. At about 140 pages it was a quick read. I knocked it off in the last week. I did not know whether to laugh or to cry at times. They say "With age comes privilege" well, Vonnegut doesn't pull any punches here, he calls it like he sees it.<br />

Evolution can go to hell as far as I am concerned. What a mistake we are. We have mortally wounded this sweet life-supporting planet–with a century of transportation whoopee. Our government is conducting a war against drugs, is it? Lets get them to go after petroleum. Talk about a destructive high! You put some of this stuff in your car and you can go a hundred miles an hour, run over the nieghbors dog, and tear the atmosphere to smithereens.<br />
<p>Vonnegut repeatedly goes after the corporatocracy that is running the show here in the US, and specivical after Bush and co.</p>
<p>God bless him. (see page 80)</p>
