Sorry Ray Bradbury fans, Mr. Bradbury will no longer write about the future; he has entered it. He died last night in Southern California. That's where I had lunch with him once. Well, he was at the next table. It was in the early 80's and I was having a Steve Harvey Breakfast at an outdoor patio on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. I used to love to hang out there and watch the rich people come and go. To my right, nearest the street, was a gentleman -- as I learned later -- was from HBO. When another man sat down, he told him Ray Bradbury was on his way. After the three of them were together I leaned my head in their direction to hear better. They were discussing making an HBO series on Bradbury's Martian Chronicles. Sure enough a few months later it debuted and was a very successful HBO seies. Wow, in this day of Facebook and Twitter everyone would have known about that is seconds. So, so long, Ray -- I enjoyed the lunch.
