Deadeye Dick ~ Kurt Vonnegut
WATCH OUT FOR LIFE. IT'LL GET YA!
In the euphoria of colossal innocence, he shot a bullet in the air. By the time it fell to earth, twelve-year-old Rudy Waltz was condemned as a double murderer, committed to care for his ruined parents -- his mother, whose ultimate fate rested on a radioactive mantelpiece, and his father, who -- in his salad days -- had found his best and only friend in a hapless young art student, Adolf Hitler. It was an odd beginning, if not an auspicious one. What can you expect when you're born in an Ohio city destined to be depopulated by a "friendly" neutron bomb? And -- after all -- it was only the beginning. As for the rest, ask Rudy, forever to be known as...DEADEYE DICK
