Kurt Vonnegut on NOW

October 8, 2005 § Leave a comment

Vonnegut: After two World Wars and the Holocaust and the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and after the Roman games and after the Spanish Inquisition and after burning witches… shouldn’t we call it off? I mean, we are a disease and should be ashamed of ourselves.

Interviewer: Mr. Vonnegut, how does a man stay funny when, like you, he thinks the world stinks?

Vonnegut: He smokes. It helps a lot.
