Obituary: Hunter S. Thompson

Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson killed himself yesterday. He was 67. Hard to believe he did not kill himself earlier considering his well known, though likely exaggerated, use of mass quantites of drugs. Thompson once said, "I wouldn't recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they've always worked for me." Ironically, drugs were not his suicide method of choice. Thompson chose a messier exit, he shot himself. And I was just watching "Where the Buffalo Roam" the other day too.
