I'm still bowing my head in silent prayer, since Bradbury has always been one of my favorite writers. My third son just read Fahrenheit 451 for his sci-fi literature college class, and since I have taught it many times, he borrowed my copy. He's read entire authors' works, like Vonnegut and Frank Herbert, and he said that F451 was about the most "damn near perfect" story he'd ever read! High praise from my well-read son, just one of my 4 sci-fi nerds raised by my sci-fi nerd husband and myself.
Ray, you changed the world...at least for those who read your words. Thanks for sharing.
