Lono and Lolo: Hunter S. Thompson, RIP

I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity
to anyone, but they’ve always worked for me. – Hunter S.
Thompson (1937-2005)

The great, the one, the only, the father of Gonzo
Journalism, Hunter S. Thompson took his life over the
weekend. His path was never one that would end quietly, in a
rocking chair. So, I guess it is a fitting end to a life
lived on the edge.

So long and mahalo.

PS: See his last ESPN column
and the wikipedia bio here.
