Sure, he had a stroke that took away the use of his right arm, but every morning, he wakes up, calls his daughter in Arizona, and dictates his “dispatch from the Land of Nod.” According to The Los Angeles TimesHero Complex blog, tomorrow “the Los Angeles City Council is scheduled to consider a resolution that would declare Ray Bradbury Week in Los Angeles, and, of course, they will vote yes.” It warms this bookseller’s heart the way L.A. has embraced a man who has lived in the same yellow house on the same tree-lined street for the last 60 years.
