If you will allow me, WA, I will go on and on. This was one of our national treasures. Nay, a gift to the world.

He was as much a mentor to me (though we never met) as any teacher I had in high school or professor in college.

The Martian Chronicles are his living testament to what man can be. What we can accomplish and what we may encounter "out there".

For me, the Toynbee Convector spoke loudest. Sometimes mankind needs to believe in a myth more than in fact.

I would say may he rest in peace, but this is Bradbury. I have a feeling he will influence us more now than he did in the 91 years of a long, much appreciated life.

Hail and farewell, mentor, teacher and friend.

Life without honor is life led in vain;


Rem tene; verba sequentur (Grasp the subject; the words will come)
