Hunter S. Thompson (1937-2005)- R.I.P.
Dr.Thompson shot himself last night at his home at Woody Creek, Colorado. This violent, vicious, blood-thirsty, alcoholic, drug addict who could write so well will fear and loathe no more....and the world will be a poorer place for it. I do not for a moment think that that is all there is to him but a public persona eclipses the private self and I'm sure he couldn't give a damn if no one but his closest friends and family saw the other side. And speaking of other side....I imagine that when Hunter arrives at the airport in Hell (luggage missing) that Richard Milhouse Nixon will greet him with a 'Took you long enough' and they can take a limousine ride talking about politics, war, death.....and sports of course.
