Ray Bradbury is Hopping Mad at Michael Moore

Well, no, he doesn't own the words. But they're his words, nonetheless, and Moore's reference to them was a clear case of coattail-grabbing, since Moore's analysis of the present/past is nothing like Bradbury's projections.
And it was Clarke, not Moore, that Bradbury was upset with there.

This is silly. Of all the things Michael Moore has done wrong, making a Ray Bradbury reference in the title of his movie is the least of them. Does Bradbury think he owns the rights to words in the format "Fahrenheit xyz"? Also, criticizing GWB to JWC is not one of Moore's major sins, either.

I certainly was. Though I think even a little spike in people reading, or rereading, Farenheit 451 would be a good thing this year....

Thanks for posting that. I was wondering whether Bradbury would be irritated or not. Good for him.
