So not a lot of people know that "God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater" was a flop of an off-Broadway musical back in 1979, written by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken of "The Little Mermaid" fame. We did it in high school, I played Kilgore Trout, and one lyric from the end of act I always stuck with me.

Diana Moon Glampers, future Handicapper General in "Harrison Bergeron" sang as follows:

"I always used to think that God just plain forgot me,
or maybe got my life mixed up with someone who was not me.
I'm still a little scared, I'm still a little sad,
but I've got to confess, it ain't been half so bad,
I think I'm coming around, since you came to this town.

God bless you, Mr. Rosewater,
God help us 'til you came.
God keep you where we need you
God love you and your name.
God bless you Mr. Rosewater,
God bless you."

Good night, Mr. Vonnegut. Thanks.
