Depending on which board-members are asked, there could be multitudinous posts of mine which are meaningless!

John,
Thank you for getting U.C.L.A. to finally reconize Mr. Bradbury with the plaque. But I also have to say what a piece of **** U.C.L.A. was about it and where they placed it. Not even an honorary degree or building named after him.
Anyway,thank you again

The plaque was placed outside the actual room where F451 was written. An honorary degree would have no meaning to Ray, a man who taught himself with books.

Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't an honorary degree of some sorts bestowed on Ray Bradbury recently by Columbia College in Chicago?

Too early to confirm but my money is on YES.

If any of you are going to the dedication of the Monrovia, CA public library please come over and say howdy. I'll be wearing a canary yellow polo shirt with ill fitting tan slacks.

Mr. Bradbury will be giving the keynote address (when Ray talks about library openings it seems more like a benediction) at 3:30 p.m.

Ill-fitting is a good word.

Just as long as all those goth kids aren't at Musso & Frank's asking 4E for his autograph and ignoring Ray - then he might get ill-tempered.

I'm ill-at-ease to tell this story since it belongs to another here on the board. Maybe he'll tell it. I laughed all afternoon (on and off) after hearing that.

I hope my bringing it up wasn't ill-advised.

I like putting "ill" in front of words.

The book signing went very well yesterday. A cadre or "usual suspects" were in attendance. The mail library meeting room had sets for 90 people, that was filled up along with people standing around the walls. They filled up a second room and a third...which had TV feeds. A nice day in a beautiful new library.

(I'll tell the story that Doug hinted at in ruled paper)

Good. Be sure to include the salty language - it's funnier.

Cadre is a good word.
