RIP, Ray Bradbury
If you've never read Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, download it to your e-reader today. It's the story about a dystopian future in which all books are banned by the government and they are burned if found. The firemen don't go around putting fires out, they go to houses where contraband books have been found and they burn them.
It's eerily prophetic to our current, politically-correct reality because of the insufferable thought police in the media and on the Left in general who try to ban certain speech they deem to be offensive to some group. This book takes what we're experiencing now to its logical conclusion.
If you don't like to read, just watch the movie. It was really well done.
