What could be wrong with being able to be immortal just by taking a daily medicine? Almost nothing. Simply PRIVACY?

Another fabulous short story from the talented Mr. Kurt Vonnegut. The future in this short story is very real in an imaginative way. Family feuds, modern science, and a sly fix make this an enjoyable read.
