This information adds so much to the Ray Bradbury legend. Bradbury was my entry into Science Fiction when I was in the 3rd grade (1965). From Bradbury I discovered the "Golden Age" , Lovecraft, Heinlein, Asimov, Bester, Clarke, Leiber and the other greats too numerous to mention. I would deliberately do things to be sent to the principal's office because they would let me sit in the library while I was in detension and I could read more Sci fi. I loved how human his books are. Your post adds a new dimension to the respect we hold for the man.
