I guess I was sad to hear that Hunter S. Thompson was dead. But then again I was always happy for Thompson to do whatever he needed to do, so why be sad that he chose his own path as usual.
I am privileged to be of the generation that Thompson best understood and of which he wrote with such disdainful passion. I'll re-read his works again this summer for sure.
