hmmm. I seem to remember a 'Ray Bradbury Theater' or something to that effect. And I believe he wrote for 'The Twilight Zone', but mostly he is one of those household names that you can't quite put your finger on why you know the name. Like Shirley Bassey.

I don't think I ever knew him. I know some twilight zone shows though.

Do you guys not know anything about science fiction?  :P

Some of my favorite sci-fi stories Ray Bradbury wrote. Pity to lose such a talent.  :(

Introduced to him by having to read Fahrenheit 451.  Loved that book.
Some people are like Slinkies. They aren't really good or even useful for anything but they always manage to put a little smile on your face when you give them enough of a push down the stairs.

I get to read it (again) for a class this semester, which I am looking forward to somewhat. :)
