Farewell to Hunter S. Thompson

MSNBC News report that Hunter S. Thompson is no longer with us. He will be missed.

from AP/MSNBC - ASPEN, Colo. - Hunter S. Thompson, the acerbic counterculture writer who popularized a new form of fictional journalism in books like “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” fatally shot himself Sunday night at his home, his son said. He was 67.

I for one will miss him. The first book of his I read was 'Hells Angels' and amongst others I thoroughly enjoyed 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas'.

Both books are timeless and will stay on my book shelf.

- My prayers and best wishes to his family and friends. -
