The Best Short Story Ever

“Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution.” from Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

This is one of my favorite short stories and I am always amazed at how it is applicable to today’s society even though it was published in 1961.  If you haven’t read it, you should.  It’s hilarious and spot on.
