I've been referencing some of my favorite authors from my youth lately and just found out he died in 2001. I don't think there is a day that goes by that I don't ponder how an elected official would fare in the "Total Perspective Vortex". The number "42" will always have special meaning. I think I want to get a dog just so I can name him Zaphod. So to Douglas Adams I say "So long, and thanks for all the fish." Anyone else have recurring influences from long dead authors or others?
