We have definately lost one of the greatest writers of our time. The good doctor, after surviving as much as he had, makes it suprising that he would take his own life. I agree that if the Doc was to do something like this than america has gone f.u.b.a.r.
I'll miss ya doc

Some Hunter S Thompson Quotes:
On Drugs: "You can turn your back on a person, but never turn your back on a drug, especially when its waving a razor sharp hunting knife in your eye."
On America: "We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world - bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are whores for power and oil with hate and fear in our hearts."
And Finally: "Some may never live, but the crazy never die."
I'm gonna smoke a tribute joint to Mr Thompson now...rock on

why would someone who has managed to survive to the age of 67 on a diet of hard drugs and booze decide enough is enough and end it all? I don't understand, and if the man who made any sense of this sick world has had enough, then we're all f**ked.

Hunter, this really pisses me off. What a backdoor way out of paying off the Super Bowl bets. I always knew you'd pull something like this. But don't worry, I've got plans.Hope they have Wild Turkey and Democrats where you end up.

then I'd suspect foul play. And if he was to end it all, I'm sure he would have kidnapped some corrupt potitician and strapped him in to the red shark, doused the car in petrol, set it alight then barrelled down vegas' main drag as a screaming fireball....or something.
A very sad day

Though he may have amazed many for what didn't kill him during his life. For those who read some of his recent writings maybe it was society changing too much around him for what he(and others) saw for the worst that finaly got to him but will likley never know
He will be missed by many the world over.

Thank you all for keeping this up. What I needed was people who felt the same as me, and thank you for that.

He was chalk full of that. Guys that brazzen don't commit suicide. Something smells fishy about this.
