ABC’s Diane Sawyer recently interviewed young girls in Afghanistan, and some were shown to be wearing New York Nicks jackets. I have to wonder if a fan of Kurt Vonnegut sent the "Nicks" jackets.
- "Christ, back in Chicago, we don’t make bicycles anymore. It’s all human relations now. The eggheads sit around trying to figure out new ways for everybody to be happy.

Kurt Vonnegut. 1963. "Bicycles for Afghanistan". Cat’s Cradle p. 89.
