Ray Bradbury passes away

Sad news.

This sentence from the story at HuffPost stood out to me:

He was most widely known for his novels “The Martian Chronicles,” Dandelion Wine," “Something Wicked This Way Comes” and his classic dystopian novel "Fahrenheit 451," which has been a contested staple of school reading lists since its publication in 1953.

"Since its publication in 1953." Over half-a-century ago (and still relevant today, BTW). That, ladies and gentlemen, is a full life of letters.

A tip of the hat to Mr. Bradbury. Farewell, sir.
