Just ordered LEVIATHAN 99 on CD. Thank you.
Downloaded A BRADBURY BINARY some time ago. Its outstanding.
CART also has dramas of stories from THE OCTOBER COUNTRY and the story ANY FRIEND OF NICHOLAS NICKELBY IS A FRIEND OF MINE. Havn't heard those as yet.
A Miscellaneous Topic:
Deaths from the mayhem in the streets in War in Iraq as of August 12, 2009, protecting the United States interests:
Deaths during last 3 years of mayhem in the streets and murders in the United States:

Civilization sounds more deadly than War, at least in the War in Iraq.
He says he wants to be buried on Mars, which may be more difficult to arrange.
dandelion~ You left out something that is even MORE difficult: Ray said he wanted to be buried on
Mars in a Campbell's Tomato Soup can.
Phil: Those are sobering facts. I don't remember the details, of the breakdown, but in 2005, it is reported that there were 32,637 suicides in the U.S. (http://www.suicide.org/suicide-statistics.html#2005) Compare that to the number of Americans killed in the entire Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Bradbury touches on this dramatically in F451, of course, where Mildred has no real reason to live. Her whole life is superficial and carries no meaning beyond trifles. In some cases, Modernism creates an interesting side effect. As it is in F451, the number of persons in our society finding suicide as a viable alternative to their lives is really sad.
jkt, thanks for the tip-off. I'm pleased but amazed that they have put together a commercial release this quickly. I will be ordering immediately.
Brother T, I have all of the previous CART releases of Bradbury material, and they are all excellent. They are generally well staged, well performed dramas, with little or no reliance on special effects.
Why is this person, Fred, ranked the number #9 on all internet traffic? Why does he have way over 100,000,000 hits on YOUTUBE and millions of subscribers? Why? Why?
FRED GOES CAMPING:
FRED GOES TO THE DENTIST:
Because he talks funny. People are easily amused, aren't they?
OH, it's more complicated than that. The kid known as Fred is 16 years old. He speaks directly to the pre-teen and the mid teenager. It's an age-cultural thing. Your comment means you are OLD! Take a good look. Here is your future. Then again, he probably has a leg up on Jerry Lewis, who probably wasn't as crazy at 16. Or maybe he was. But then we never know. Now with YOUTUBE, you at least know what Fred is like. Techno advancement, heh?
Here is some bio. info. on the artists doing Ray's next two graphic novels.
