Man, FUCK.
Self-Portrait 3
Hunter S. Thompson, the acerbic counterculture writer who popularized a new
form of journalism in books like "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," fatally
shot himself Sunday night at his Aspen-area home, his son said. He was 67.

"Hunter prized his privacy and we ask that his friends and admirers respect
that privacy as well as that of his family," Juan Thompson said in a statement
released to the Aspen Daily News.

Pitkin County Sheriff Bob Braudis, a personal friend of Thompson, confirmed
the death to the News. Sheriff's officials did not return calls to The
Associated Press late Sunday.

It's going to take me a really long time to get over this one, and I imagine I'm definitely not alone in that feeling. I think it was a large cause of my depression yesterday. It's terrible when the world loses a person like Hunter.

I know. Hunter S. Thompson is one of the reasons I decided I wanted to be a reporter lo those many moons ago, and one of the main reasons I keep writing now.
