The Death of Fear and Loathing
I don't do too many blog obituaries.
But I woke up this morning to the news that Hunter S Thompson had killed himself.
This was a guy I love to read. His book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is one of my all-time favorite books and I also loved Fear and Loating on the Campaign Trail 1972 and The Great Shark Hunt. I've read a bunch more, but those three stand out in my mind.
I suppose taking a handgun to himself is the way it had to end for Hunter, although I wish it hadn't ended that way.
Goodbye Hunter, I'll miss you and so will the world.
