My name's Kristie. I'm in love with Kurt Vonnegut. I figured that tumblr needed a kick ass Vonnegut blog, so here's my attempt.

I repeated what my one-time hero, Kenneth Whistler, had said in reply to the same general sort of question long, long ago. Whistler had been a witness at a trial of strikers accused of violence. The judge had become curious about him, had asked him why such a well-educated man from such a good family would so immerse himself in the working class.
My stolen answer to Nixon was this:

She broke my heart. I didn’t like that much. But that was the price. In this world, you get what you pay for.
