Re:R.I.P. Ray Bradbury
Buddyroadhouse, you're so right. Fahrenheit 451 is also about a world where there is a lack of communication...not just from burning books. In that book, people also watch tv all day...go speeding down super highways(this was written well before interstates)....take drugs to go to sleep and to wake up....interact with their"wall tv"......don't listen to one another.....and watch police car chases live on tv(think O.J.) On TV, there are presidential debates(again,long before Nixon- Kennedy started it)...and (help) people pick presidents by the sound of their name or look,,,,I could go on...but you get the idea. Ray Bradbury also saw into the future...much of that book, written in 1951 has come true,,,he predicted us...and in that book "us" doesn't look good.Yes, Ray was more than just a writer!!!
