Off to Trafalmadore, perhaps
Yesterday on one of many stops for our Ferris Bueller's Day Off: NYC with J. and B. Edition, we checked out the Strand. I bought a black and red canvas bag in an attempt to start eschewing plastic and also picked some books to put in it. One of the books I picked up and flipped through was one by Kurt Vonnegut. Shaving this morning, I flipped over my NYTimes and felt a pang of sadness to see that he just died. Among the pictures the online Times obit features is this one of the man himself standing in front of the dollar racks outside that great book store. He will be missed.
