R.I.P H.S.T.

Yesterday the news broke that Hunter S. Thompson died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Thompson was known for creating "gonzo" journalism where he immersed himself in his stories. He wrote many great articles and books. His most famous book is probably "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" made famous for a whole new generation by the movie. He recently had written books such as "Kingdom of Fear" where he describes the Bush administation in less than flattering terms.
Anyone who is familiar with Thompson's work knows that the world has lost a great literary figure.
May he rest in peace.
