Ray Bradbury has Passed

… may he rest in peace.

He, and other writers, inspired a nation to go into space.  Today, our politicians can no longer find the means to pursue that dream. The colonization of Mars will not happen in our generation.

He also wrote Fahrenheit 451 (the temperature at which books burn).  It is a dire warning against the suppression of ideas and a culture that ignores history.

I will miss him.  He was a true visionary.
