Kurt Vonnegut’s 90th

by jbloodwell

Today would have been Kurt Vonnegut’s 90th birthday. I’m not usually one for celebrating hypothetical birthdays (Vonnegut died in 2007), but by coincidence today I came across this post, written for Hot Metal Bridge‘s blog while I was a graduate student at the University of Pittsburgh. It could be more concise, but I remember well the incident described in the post, and am still charmed by the whole encounter.
