gonzo gone

Hunter S Thompson shot himself on 20th February 2005 at his ranch. He was 67. Below is a link to The Guardian's story on this news. Personally, I recently read The Rum Diaries by Hunter, and found it to be a great read with just as much going on as Fear & Loathing (with slightly fewer drugs and heady moments). Recommended. I also read an interview recently on his view of the current presidential situation in America. Highly entertaining.

He will be sadly missed.
