I am probably Kurt's biggest fan:
I used a Vonnegut quote as my 1975 yearbook quote,"And the chrono-synclastic infundibulum said to mankind, in effect, What Makes You Think You're Going Anywhere?"
I was born in Schenectady.
I have bought and read each and every one of his books. Multiple copies in some cases because I gave them away to many people.
But I disagree with Kurt's premise in the article. I don't think that God is mad. I think he might be a little pissed off, but I don't think he is mad. All he wants is for us to start listening to the world and to stop beating on it so hard.
Stop cutting your grass in the summer, at least until the cool weather returns. Keep it at least two inches long if you must cut it.
Water your trees. If you don't have trees, plant some.
Use your leftovers for compost. It might stink a bit, but having it hauled away is like giving away a barrel of oil each season.
Use shade to cool things like your car. Get one of those car shades and use it to cool your car in the hot sun. Stop buying black cars. They are like little ovens in the sun.
Start using the full service pumps. You're paying $50 to $75 to fill up those monsters. At the very least, you can pay an extra $2 to get your oil and fluids checked, check your tire pressure and it will give you the chance to go in to the station and buy some water or iced tea to slake your thirst.
While you're at it, buy your drinks a case at a time. There is nothing better than room temperature water on even the hottest days. With all the money you save, give away a few drinks to people you see who look thirsty. Get ready for next year's " Bring a Drink to Someone Who Looks Hot" day.
And lastly Kurt, you can't go until God is good and done with you. You're a Dorothy and when you finally get to go, it will be as simple as clicking your heels three times and saying "Take Me Home."
