A Conversation for Hunter S Thompson
Surrendermonkey Started conversation Feb 21, 2005
It seem this morning Hunter S Thompson has been found dead, with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.
R.I.P. Hunter - the world will not know your like again.

I'm just bummed. I'm glad you are here and appreciate HST. He taught me that sometimes "good tellin'" is as good as the story. Sometimes better. G'nite Hunter. I am gonna miss you. Ack. sigh.

i was literally stunned when the news went out monday and couldn't even write for The Post this week. i first found hunter on the pages of Rolling Stone magazine and for the past four years he has been writing for www.espn.go.com in their Page Two section as "Hey Rube' and there is a published collection of his most recent sportswriting (and other things)called 'hey rube : blood sport, the bush doctrine, and the downward spiral of dumbness.'
according to recent reports, HST was cremated tuesday and wished his remains to be 'blasted out of a cannon.'
and, come to think of it, he was a blogger before there was an internet.
an eye in the eye of a storm.

I believe that there are plans afoot to blast Hunter's ashes skywards from a sculpture consisting of a collection of pipes topped with a two-thumbed fist.
"Two thumbs!" said Hunter, "always remember, two thumbs!" God knows why. - Ralph Steadman:
Apparently Johnny Depp has been in contact with some Hollywood pyrotechnicians.

Very sad to hear of the end of possibly one of the greatest american writers.

Still a bit stunned about Hunter S. What a f**kin great guy!
Presume you've heard what J Depp is planning to do with his ashes
You must see the documentary "Breakfast with Hunter". It's a wonderful insight plus contains some great compliments to Hunter from his son. At least he got them in when he was alive.
See yah Hunter. You didn't know of me, but I certainly know of you.
PS - wear some golf-shoes, or else you'll never get out of here alive!
