Harrison Bergeron.

Kurt Vonnegut Jr's “Harrison Bergeron” was one of those short stories that blew me away as a kid and i find myself still referring to it. In talking about identity online with two friends tonite, we got into a conversation about how digital tools create certain handicaps that, in theory, might place everyone on an equal playing field. I brought up “Harrison Bergeron” and was stunned to find that they hadn't read it. So, i figured that i'd post it here (under extended entry) in case there are others who haven't had the opportunity to read this wonderful short story.
