    07:00am MDT Clyde ponders the passing of an
    incredible mind and
    proposes a "Towel Day" in tribute.

    Friday morning I went to breakfast at Big Boy's (mmmm,
    Breakfast Bar);
    oddly enough, we sat in booth "42" and had a good
    laugh about it being the answer to "Life, The Universe
    and Everything".
    Later that day, headlines flashed the news that
    Douglas Adams, creator of the longest trilogy in
    history, had died. I
    was stunned; it was remnicient of the loss I felt when
    Jim Henson died.

    Douglas Adams will be missed by his fans worldwide. So
    that all his
    fans everywhere can pay tribute to this genius, I
    that two weeks after his passing (May 25, 2001) be
    marked as "Towel
    Day". All Douglas Adams fans are encouraged to carry
    a towel with them for the day.

    Make sure that the towel is conspicous- use it as a
    talking point to
    encourage those who have never read the Hitchhiker's
    Guide to go pick up a copy. Wrap it around your head,
    use it as a
    weapon, soak it in nutrients- whatever you want!

    Most minds in the universe are constrained to the laws
    of Physics, let
    us remember those that broke the laws,
    and got away with it.

    So long Douglas, and thanks for all the fish!
