The Drudge Report is reporting that Hunter S. Thompson shot himself to death today at his home in Woody Creek, Colorado. The initial report suggests suicide though I guess there is the possibility it could have been an accident as well. There are no details at this point. I wouldn’t be surprised if Dr. Thompson, who always did it his own way, decided himself when to jump off the ship. Whatever the case, it is sad to see him go. He was one of my very favorite authors and though the myth of ‘Dr. Gonzo’ eventually overshadowed his books for many people, the man wrote some great words and had some inciteful (insightful?) things to say about where we as a nation are going and where we have been. Godspeed, good Doctor, godspeed. I’m heading to Martin’s to raise a toast to the departed HST. Meet me if you care to join.
PatT and I made it out to Copiah Cty to give HST a proper wake. Heres to the night.
