A sad day in the literary world

Hunter S. Thompson committed suicide today at his home in Aspen, CO. The story is here:

I was a sophomore in college when I read Fear and Loathing, which still stands out as having perhaps the most vivid imagery of any book I've read. Anyhow, this is sad news for anyone familiar with Thompson's work.

It certainly is. Hunter S Thompson, in both his writings and his public persona was a true American great. All the people he inspired, and I count myself as one of them, will certainly feel a sadness today.

Bye Hunter
