On August 6th, 1945, at 8.15am, the Enola Gay, under the direction of President Harry S. Truman, dropped ‘Little Boy’ – one of the first atom bombs – on Hiroshima. Essentially, it ended the American war with Japan. At 8.14 this morning, for no good reason, David Geraint Evans dropped something similar. 750 words of comic genius from a usually miserable Welsh writer.
