So Hunter S. Thompson ends like this?

IHunter's death calls Hamlet to my mind. "Oh, that the Almighty had not raised his canons against self-slaughter!". Hunter didn't believe in the Almighty, of course, so he took his own way out.

I've always believed God in his mercy spared John Lennon and Dorothy Day the Reagan years. I'm sorry Hunter didn't have the strength to live through the second Bush administration. America could have used him. I don't know, but I don't think he was meant to die now.
