Gonzo Journalist Commits Suicide

Hunter S. Thompson has killed himself.

This makes me sad. I read "Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas" years ago, and I enjoyed it very much. I don't remember much of it now, so I'll have to read it again. It's too bad that Johnny Depp couldn't save the movie version, which really sucked. This reminded me that Spaulding Gray had committed suicide a year ago.

This news really sucks. Thompson was a joy to read.

Hey - it's so weird you mention Spaulding. I did the same thing in my blog... In a way, Spaulding hit me harder, just cuz he was so interesting to me; super smart and witty. Plus I met him once in Rhode Island. Anyway, cool blog.
