Harrison Bergeron By: Kurt Vonnegut, Jr Story board By: Ted Whalen
“The year was 2081, and everybody was finally equal” (Vonnegut 1).
“And George, while his intelligence was way above normal, had a little mental handicap radio in his ear.” (Vonnegut 1).
“And it was in that clammy month that the H-G men took George and Hazel Bergeron's fourteen-year-old son, Harrison, away” (Vonnegut 1).
“Harrison thrust his thumbs under the bar of the padlock that secured his head harness. The bar snapped like celery. Harrison smashed his headphones and spectacles against the wall” (Vonnegut 1).
“It was then that Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper General, came into the studio with a double-barreled ten-gauge shotgun. She fired twice, and the Emperor and the Empress were dead before they hit the floor” (Vonnegut 1).
