I suppose you’re wondering (as any sentient being would) what Kurt Vonnegut (he was a junior, hence the initials KV2) is doing on an “alexandriacardinal” blogsite? Well, the best I can come up with is the cardinal is the Indiana state bird; there is an Alexandria, Indiana; and the supervisor is a native Hoosier and is justly proud of her home state author. And this is also occasionally a travel site.
On our most recent visitation to Indiana, the kids took us to the new Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library in downtown Indianapolis. As honorary Tralfamadorians, it seemed the proper thing to do. Beginning with Cat’s Cradle in the early 60’s, shaping our impressionable teenage minds, we became lifelong fans. The following reflects the displays at the library, including his artwork, and an homage by Morley Safer:
