Hunter S. Thompson RIP

Dr Thompson...what else is there to say. A genius writer and journalist, accutely insightful when it came to American politics and his bete noire Richard Milhous Nixon...

He will be missed, and it just seems to me that it was the wrong time for him to go, with a president worse than Nixon in the White House and Gannon knocking on the door Thompson still had work to do.

I'll leave the last words to the good doctor himself...

'As you were, I was. As I am, you will be'
