It is a science fiction short story by Kurt Vonnegut, originally published in the digest magazine Worlds of If Science Fiction, January 1962, and collected in Vonnegut's Bagombo Snuff Box (1999). The title is pronounced "2 B R naught 2 B", referencing the famous phrase "to be, or not to be" from William Shakespeare's Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. In this story, the title refers to the telephone number one dials to schedule an assisted suicide with the Federal Bureau of Termination. Vonnegut's 1965 novel God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater describes a story by this name, attributing it to his recurring character Kilgore Trout,  although the plot summary given is closer in nature to the eponymous tale from the short-story collection Welcome to the Monkey House.
Very good short story from Vonnegut. He is one of my favorite authors and thus a good read was expected. A must read for real fans of Vonnegut.
Great short read
Very enjoyable and speedy read. I read it over lunch and enjoyed every second.
Engaging and entertaining as are most all of Vonnegut's pieces!
