Quote of the week: Kurt Vonnegut

“I sometimes wondered what the use of any of the arts was. The best thing I could come up with was what I call the “canary in the coal mine theory of the arts.” This theory says that artists are useful to society because they are so sensitive. They are super-sensitive. They keel over like canaries in poison coal mines long before more robust types realize that there is any danger whatsoever.”
Kurt Vonnegut
