Kilgore Trout Makes a Mark

A quote, particularly good on Earth Day. At least in my estimation.

It was Trout’s fantasy that somebody would be outraged by the footprints. This would give him the opportunity to reply grandly, “What is it that offends you so? I am simply using man’s first printing press. You are reading a bold and universal headline which says ,’I am here, I am here, I am here.’
--Kurt Vonnegut, Breakfast of Champions
Of course, right now we are much more concerned with controlling that footprint.
