Towel Day 2009 DNA Tribute 2

As I wrote an hour ago today is the day that Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy fans pay tribute to the late writer Douglas Adams. On the BBC's H2G2 site there is a weekly, now fortnightly newspaper called The Post. One of the Guide's most prolific researchers Demon Drawer was also one of the Post's most prolific contributers. One of his post popular columns was a series called 45 words.

In the 10oth edition of the post someone worked out that the average number of words per researcher in the edited guide was 45. Demon Drawer decided that would be a challenge to write exactly that amount of words on a particular subject

As Demon Drawer is AKA the host of this blog on this the 10th Annivesary of H2G2 and the 7th Commemoration of Towel day here is the 45 Words that marked the first anniversary of the lose of the figure head and creator. The original is here as originally published on 9 May 2002.

Sadly, this weekend marks the first anniversary of the death of Douglas Noel Adams. What more can be said?
