There goes my hero

Hunter S. Thompson.

In my book, there hasn’t been a better American writer in the past 50 years. As a working journalist, I have nothing but absolute respect for the man. No one has better called people on their bullshit than he did. Sure his methods were unorthodox at best, but he got the job done.

He also knew how to take the piss out of everything and everyone, including himself. If you knew the extent to which the world was going to holy hell, I’m sure you’d have to laugh at everything just to stay sane. Guns and whiskey help too.
