Hunter Thompson Commits Suicide

The obit ignores the obvious: Richard Nixon is somehow to blame.

But seriously folks, what a waste. Lileks, as he often does, says it best here. My own thoughts on the subject are similar. He was once a skilled writer. I don't know whether the drugs destroyed his brain and led to the hatred, or whether the hatred made him seek refuge with the drugs. He could have been a literary giant, but instead lived a shallow and tragic life.
