Re: RARA-AVIS: Gonzo Suicides

Date: 21 Feb 2005

When you think about it, biting the loud end of his gun was about the best way Thompson could have gone. A real Papa kind of exit. It would be soooo discouraging to have read that he was found slumped next to the toilet with a needle in his arm, a la Lenny Bruce.

It's a gonzo curtain call for the best counterculture writer of our generation. I pulled my dog-eared copy of The Curse of Lono out of my bookcase this morning after reading the obit in the paper, to read over again during lunch this week.

He will be missed... R
