Passing of a Non-Corporate Tool

Farewell to Kurt Vonnegut, dead at 84 despite a lifetime of chainsmoking, general despiser of corporate toil and its costs (personal, environmental, spiritual, etc.) and author of many a fine, darkly satirical novel. My favorite is still his first: Player Piano, which envisions a near-future world where virtually all work is done by machines. Resistance? Futile, as you can well imagine.
