[Alice’s husband died when the train he was on ‘hurl[ed] itself off an open drawbridge’ two days before she herself passed away in hospital from cancer, leaving 4 orphaned young children.]

Since Alice had never received any religious instruction, and since she had led a blameless life, she never thought of her awful luck as being anything but accidents in a very busy place.

-Kurt Vonnegut, Slapstick
