The Death of Fear and Loathing

Barstow 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.
