An Inconvenient Truth, Vonnegut-style

Author Kurt Vonnegut died yesterday at age 84.

Vonnegut said the villains in his books were never individuals, but culture, society and history, which he said were making a mess of the planet.

"We probably could have saved ourselves, but we were too damned lazy to try very hard... and too damn cheap," he once suggested carving into a wall on the Grand Canyon, as a message for flying-saucer creatures after we humans have long since destroyed the planet.

Despite the fact he was one of my favorite authors, I'd like to be able to prove him wrong on that point.
