RIP Ray Bradbury

I was lucky enough to have met Ray Bradbury on two occasions - one when our CAPS (Comic Art Professional Society) group honored him in the Valley at one of our annual banquets, and then covering a visit to Seven Arrows in Pacific Palisades for this article. He was a genius with a fertile imagination and such a gifted storyteller. He was proud of his French Medal of Honor. What a loss.

Ray Bradbury, just days before Valentine's Day 2008, gave an amazing lecture to the students at Seven Arrows Elementary, never talking down to them or even sanitizing his stories. He told stories from his childhood and great anecdotes about his salad days. The children loved him.
