So.
Farewell then,
Ray Bradbury.

You wrote science fiction
Including
[i]The Martian Chronicles[/i]
But now your
Chronicles are over.

You wrote that death
Is a lonely business
And so nothing wicked
Should come your way.

I hope you are
Not somewhere
It is Fahrenheit 451

but I suppose we have to fill in time before some more interesting demise occurs.

My mate Tim suspects that Prince Philip faked his bladder problem(?)
to escape any further jubilee tedium!

In math, even... you'd almost think they were related somehow. (I wonder if any of his kids in Evanston ever went to see the Nutcracker on Ice?)
