Hunter S. Thompson -- Dead at 67

Hunter S. Thompson

Hunter S. Thompson shot himself dead last night (February 20) at the age of 63. Marriage problems? Depression? Too many narcotics? Possibly all of the above -- only he'll know. The stories of how he got there will always live on.

Real News People™ have more, uh... traditional reporting.

hunter s. thompson isn't petty enough to have taken his life over the usual suspects. some say it was because he had been through some major hip surgery and such lately and was in pain, but what makes the most sense is that he isn't the type to be confined to a hospital bed dying of old age with tubes coming out of every oriface. suicide seems like his style and i think he would have been amused at denying god the chance.

at any rate we lost a fucking superb author and we are definately running short on any left.
