The right place

I guess a political thread is the best place to eulogize Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, gonzo journalist, one of my heroes. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that his life ended in such a violent and unexpected way. He'll be missed by many, and never forgotten.

If you're too young to know who he was, read his masterpiece, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", or at least see the movie. (Johnny Depp followed him around for quite a while to make sure he got him right.) But really, I think you had to live through the 60s to really appreciate him. Maybe not.

Rest in peace, Duke.
