Hunter S. Thompson: 1937 – 2005

Hunter S. Thompson killed himself in his Woody Creek, Colorado home Sunday night. He was a prolific writer and an inspiration to many of us, both in writing and in politics.

You will be missed, Lono.

Hunter S. Thompson

I feel a strange urge to snort a few rails of mescaline and coke, chase that with a fifth of good Costa Rican rum and call up random senators and celebrities at four in the morning with the news that they must quickly get dressed and flee the country because the revolution has started.

But hey, that’s probably just the pills talking.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. Hunter Thompson has been a great influence in my life for the last decade. He definitly was “one of god’s own prototypes”. The only saddness i find in his death is that there is now a hole in the world that is too great for any one person to fill. And in his passing i find an urge to keep the shark hunt alive in any & every way possible and also to not let the GONZO idealism end here. There is no sympathy for the devil, keep that in mind…buy the ticket…take the ride.
