    RIP Ray

    I love his story of writing his stories on a rented typewriter in the library in LA.

    There is no finer novel for a twelve-year-old boy to read than Dandelion Wine.  I have not read him in many years, but he had quite an impact on me as a reader.

    (pedantic aside:  it really is a shame there aren’t any sound engineers over at Caltech.)

    Up with this kind of thing.

    “The dwarf sees farther than the giant, when he has the giant’s shoulder to mount on.”  – Coleridge, riffing on nine centuries of previous ideas on the subject. Bradbury has more fun with it. Sagan seems to think so too.
