Hunter S. Thompson Would Kill Himself Again

"In his long-running fever dream about America and its abundant pathologies, the bald man, with the tumbler of whiskey and head full of Schedule 1 narcotics, captured not only a mood — your government is not your friend — but many realities of civic life, most notably that if candidates were willing to do what it takes to get elected, they would probably arrive in office corrupted beyond hope."

-- David Carr, in a review of the new documentary, "Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson," in the New York Times

  1. I so miss Thompson in this current election circus. I can only imagine the slings and arrows :o)

    But you're not doing so bad a job yourself chronicling it!
