Vonnegut at the blackboard

I was so glad to see Ampersand Review link to this article in Lapham’s Quarterly:  I had to profound good fortune to see Kurt Vonnegut give this same lecture at Trinity University in San Antonio back in, oh, 1995?  1996?  I forget the date, but I will never forget this lecture, in which Vonnegut explains his theory of graphing plots.  The Lapham article does a great job of conveying the gist of that brilliant lecture.
