RIP Ray Bradbury, 1920-2012
Certainly a surprise, but not a terrible shock; the man was 91 years old after all. Doesn't make it any sadder, though and literature and humanity as a whole as lost a giant. There's not much I can say that others haven't already, but he definitely left a mark and Fahrenheit 451 will stand throughout time as a warning against censorship and the danger of simply not reading.
