R.I.P. Hunter S. Thompson
I was stunned to learn of Hunter S. Thompson's suicide last week -- I was off the grid and unable to access any media or email.
Thompson was a phenomenally talented writer. His book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (sub-titled, A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream). remains to this day one of the funniest things I ever read. Get the hardcover, which is brilliantly illustrated by Ralph Steadman
You can also check out his 1965 Nation article on Motorcycle Gangs: Losers and Outsiders
