I see what you mean, and just about went for it too, never mind the
schedule. What I mean is, I saw the cover of Piano Player but I never read
it. What I read was Slaughterhouse Five (in 1978), Breakfast of the
Champions (in 1976), Welcome to the Monkey House (in 1976), God Bless you Mr
Rosewater (in 1978), Cat's Cradle(1976), Slapstick (1976). I also think I
read Jailbird and Bluebeard (in the Canarias) but I don't recall the plot.

My hypothesis is that Russian humanism is superior to American humanism. Why
? Because Americans kill people more often at random, whereas in Russia more
often there actually has to be an intelligible purpose, a point in killing


I'd like to teach the world to sing
in perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms
and keep it company
Shut up you stupid woman
Don't you realise America is Number One
