Poor Douglas Adams. Poor, poor, poor Douglas Adams. I mean ‘Poor’ in the sense of lamentations, not literally: the man was amazingly filthy-stinking rich for what little actual work he did. The fact that he, himself, would admit his financial gains far outstripped any justification from his actual talent is one of the many things that I like about the guy. There are many things to like about Douglas Adams, not the least of which was that he was a genuinely funny man. On the other hand, for those of us who liked him, there are some things not to like about him.
