So It Goes

Ablogistan has a perceptive comment on the recent passing of Kurt Vonnegut, and the coverage the event received in comparison to Anna Nicole's death:
All I know is that I would feel much more confident about the state of the world and humanity in general if Vonnegut's death received more than three times as much coverage as Anna Nicole's, and not the other way around.

And a previously unpublished poem by Kurt Vonnegut, Worship,
(VIA The New York Yimes):
I don't know about you,
but I practice a disorganized religion.
I belong to an unholy disorder.
We call ourselves,
"Our Lady of Perpetual Astonishment."
You may have seen us praying
for love
on sidewalks outside the better
eating establishments
in all kinds of weather.
Blow us a kiss
upon arriving or departing,
and we will climax
It can be quite a scene,
especially if it is raining
cats and dogs

If you can read that poem and not at least smile, well you got no sense of humor pal.
