Summer Grilling Speech

I don’t know what you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for seasoning, I can tell you I don’t have spices. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for things like you. If you let my hunger go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will grill you.

R.I.P. Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury — author of The Martian Chronicles,Fahrenheit 451,Something Wicked This Way Comes, and many more literary classics — died this morning in Los Angeles, at the age of 91.

In case you were wondering, I was inspired to use Salamander as my online handle over 20 years ago, and it is in reference to the fire truck and symbol used by Guy Montag and the other firemen in Fahrenheit 451.
