Hunter S. Thompson took his own life a while back. Very sad. Back in the day he had a profound affect on my journalistic style. Yes, he was a little (lot) twisted, but he had a unique spin on the world that could have led him to Jesus, but I am afraid that did not happen. Hunter lived in one of my favorite towns: Aspen, Colorado, and when he killed himself, Johhny Depp spent big $ for a fireworks show for his ashes. Sadder.
I found this poster at a Pancake House in Nashville by Vanderbilt University. It pretty well summed up Hunter's life.
