Vale Hunter S Thompson
I always felt the best thing about HST was Ralph Steadman, who has penned a piece for the Grauniad. Prof Bunyip reckons HST was the real deal. If I have to give the man credit I can comfortably do so on the strength of Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail which is my personal fave. Why "if"? Cos he was a drug addled overdrinking pain in the arse of a bloke who could not be relied on to file copy on time and thought everyone else was a suckup to the man, or some such. I mean come on, small doses and when he's sleeping, right?
Still, leaves the world of writing a better place than he found it. That ain't a bad epitaph eh? How many folks can have that said of 'em?
