This has been a fantastic line of posts. Thanks to one and all.  

I would like to add this: to the best of my knowledge Kurt Vonnegut publically stated
that he did write science fiction.  My memory is that it was 10 or more years ago while
he was speaking at an American Booksellers Association meeting.  He something akin to: Of
course I write science fiction, I've always written science fiction.  But if I'd let
anyone call it science fiction when I started to write, no one would have reviewed my
books, bought my books, or reviewed my books.  

I would like this to be true on several levels and for several reasons - most importantly
I thought it a positive sign that the 60's ghetto walls were finally down, and that this
guy was finally coming clean after so many years.  It obviously could only have happened
several years after his urinal quote from Wampeters. I'll see if I can track down the
reference.  Perhaps its only a rumor or my faulty memory? I wondered if anyone else had
heard this?
