In other news, happy birthday to science fiction giant Ray Bradbury, who turned 86 yesterday.
In his honor, two quotes for the day:
"There was always a minority afraid of something, and a great majority afraid of the dark, afraid of the future, afraid of the past, afraid of the present, afraid of themselves and shadows of themselves."
Ray Bradbury, The Martian Chronicles, "Usher II"
"We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?"
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
