Slaughterhouse jive

If Kurt Vonnegut is still your favorite Indiana author, you might want to think about giving Booth Tarkington another look. Vonnegut has gone from being a competent chronicler of the horror of war to being a venemous old fool who thinks suicide bombers are "very brave people" who must have an "amazing high" before blowing themselves up. He says it is "sweet and honourable" to die for what you believe in and rejects the idea that terrorists are motivated by twisted religious beliefs.
