I don't need to add an "extra" clause to "It was Kurt Vonnegut"; the "extra"

has already been said). It is not self-contained or absolute.
If you can describe a situation where "He was Kurt Vonnegut" can be used to
open a declarative concourse, instead of "It was Kurt Vonnegut", please let
me know. You will have discovered something new about the English language,
that billions of users before you did not know.
By the way, you need a comma after "sure", and an 'e' at the end of "claus".
