The first article carrying Vonnegut's byline, 'This Business of Whistle Purchasing,' a lighthearted criticism of a school fund-raiser, was submitted at the urging of his sophomore English teacher.
Charles J. Shields
It's hard when you read an article saying bad things about you. It is as if someone is sticking a knife on your heart. But I am the harshest critic of my work.
A stale article, if you dip it in a good, warm, sunny smile, will go off better than a fresh one that you've scowled upon.

I don't see how an article of clothing can be indecent. A person, yes.
Robert A. Heinlein
