Hunter S. Thompson Commits Suicide

The founder of “Gonzo Journalism” is dead after suffering a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

I still remember first running across Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas as a teenager and being completely overwhelmed by it. It was like no other book I had ever seen. Later, as my reading list expanded, I recognized influences like Kerouac, Bukowski&nbsp_place_holder;and Mencken in what Thomson had done.

Like it or hate it, his writing was like no other.
