Some of these stories are exceptional. All of them are interesting, looking at the world through a slightly tilted lens. Bradbury says in his introduction not to read too much into any of them: they're just stories. Nevertheless, they can make the reader think about things in ways that are new. His favorite, "Massinello Pietro" is also mine, based on someone he knew in the 1940's.

"I", said Pietro, "have been the patient one. I have waited for the world to stop being silly. I have waited for it to stop wars. I have waited for politicians to be honest. I have waited--la la la--for real estate men to be good citizens. But while I wait, I dance!" He demonstrated.

We are still waiting. (but, hopefully, also still dancing)
