There were vile people in both those cities [Sodom and Gomorrah], as is well known. The world is better off without them.
And Lot’s wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human.
So she was turned to a pillar of salt. So it goes.
–the narrator in Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five
