MP Bulletin Extra: In Remembrance of Ray Bradbury

As many of you may already know, Ray Bradbury passed away today at the age of 91. His works have stimulated our minds, inspired us to look into the future and allowed us to lose ourselves in the depth of his storytelling. Unlike many other wonderful writers who often leave us wanting more only to find we have devoured all they had created, Mr. Bradbury prolific career left hundreds of stories in which we can continue to enjoy and delve into his boundless imagination for many years to come.

What are your favorites?  What do you remember of the man and his writings?

Below are 3 articles I have collected today from the expanse of pieces remembering the man. I think they provide some memorable insights into the person he was, his writings and his ability to envision the not too distant future.
