Many Mar’s moons ago, I used to read a lot of Science Fiction..and Ray Bradbury was at the top of my reading list. Now I read mostly about politics, so you see things haven’t changed much.
As you may have heard, Ray Bradbury, the man who wrote so much great stuff, passed away, but not before he got to actually DRIVE the Mars Rover…something the he had inspired. Great spirits, and great imaginations, are products of the individual who dares to never grow old. His grandson said he never met a bigger kid.
Ray did not like the new direction of books on the internet though. He had this to say:
Those aren’t books. You can’t hold a computer in your hand like you can a book. A computer does not smell… A book has got to smell. You have to hold it in your hands and pray to it. You put it in your pocket and you walk with it. And it stays with you forever. But the computer doesn’t do that for you. I’m sorry.
It will be a sad day when the “book” is outlawed…and no doubt by Bloomberg if he keeps going. Nobody Thinks…Ray left a galaxy of wonderment for generations to come….
And that’s the mark of a true star.
