I'm going to Vonnegut's birthplace this weekend to visit John and Sarah Green. One of my friends who doesn't know them asked me why I would choose to spend Labor Day weekend in Indianapolis and I said "Because John and Sarah Green are THAT AWESOME." (I guess any attempt at a "no offense, Indianapolis" would sound hollow. I have never been there, and I have heard it sucks. Prove everyone wrong this weekend, "Naptown"! )
Also, John and his brother Hank are really super-famous now for their Brotherhood 2.0 project and have a worldwide following of people of all ages, races, and ethnicities called "nerdfighters" who sent John hundreds of videos for his birthday, and also there is a charitable foundation involved: Swear to god. Somebody should write about this phenomenon for The New York Times or another high-circulation national media outlet.
I will report on my awesome Two Day Indianapolis Adventure when I get back, possibly.
