Column: Without Ray Bradbury, summer won’t be the same

Sunday’s column is a tribute to Ray Bradbury, who died June 5. I’m late with this, I know, but vacation, council meetings, possible library closures and other matters delayed me. The photo was taken in Pomona before Bradbury’s talk in October 2010; it may have been his last public appearance. Read the column here and feel free to comment if you ever met Bradbury or read him.

    Outstanding column David. Worth the wait. The depth of feelings and quality of writing honor your favorite author.

    [I appreciate that, Bob. There’s so much more I could have said, and better, but I hope I hit the high points. — DA]

    After weedwacking my backyard Sunday morning, I sat in the shade to read the paper and another David Allen column. It was so emotionally moving and I again regretted not having seen Ray Bradbury at Mrs. Nelson’s in La Verne some years ago.
