Frustrated with his teacher’s insistence to seek out symbolism in literature, 16-year-old Bruce McAllister mailed 150 surveys in 1963 to find out what the authors themselves thought about this critical approach.
Ray Bradbury’s response (above) and many others (Isaac Asimov, Joseph Heller, and John Updike to name a few) via Mental Floss.
Naturally, McAllister went on to become an English professor.

Am I the only one disappointed that Scandal is going the same route as Alias and the whole Irina Derevko/Jack Bristow plot? It was already really predictable when Olivia’s father first showed up. Now is just downright ridiculous.
Life is short.

Every brand, every product and every campaign - "Life is short, X is shorter".
