Nice piece. So, DS! When does the Ray Bradbury Commemorative Statue get officially presented in Waukegan? 8/20/2016 would be a fine day!?
It would an event to clink a glass of Dandelion Wine with so many who have shared in the love of his works and life. It would offer a chance to also remember Mr. B's departed friends who have exchanged words here and at the countless gatherings throughout the years. Just a thought . . . f

Many years ago a lovely historian gave me a tour of all sites relevant to Marcus Whitman within driving distance of his birthplace. As we entered a well-kept cemetery (and they weren't all), he pointed out a monument and said, "That's the man who had Marcus Whitman's house torn down." The monument was not the size of a house but maybe a small shed anyway, and as I say right at the entrance. These ego-turkeys are all the same, angry at sharing the limelight or having anyone more highly regarded than they are. If they can't be respected above all they destroy everything connected with it that they can. Look up what Ray said about the JFK assassination, no conspiracy theorist he! Look up King Henry VIII. Look up the guy who shot John Lennon, whose name I will not dignify by repeating. Look up the current president of the United States who ditto. Don't let the turkeys get away with these atrocities.
