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.
the movie isn't half bad either….
