Kurt Vonnegut

United States writer whose novels and short stories are a mixture of realism and satire and science fiction ( November 11, 1922- April 11, 2007)






"I was taught in the sixth grade that we had a standing army of just over a hundred thousand men and that the generals had nothing to say about what was done in Washington. I was taught to be proud of that and to pity Europe for having more than a million men under arms and spending all their money on airplanes and tanks. I simply never unlearned junior civics. I still believe in it. I got a very good grade."
