Hunter S Thompson is dead

Hat tip Three Point Turn for breaking the breaking news.

Goodbye Raoul Duke
Though I never knew you at all,
You had the guts to be yourself
While those around you faked.
You took life in both hands
And shook it til it made some sense,
Now you've gone and blown it off
Hemingway coup de grace.

Ah damn it. The Man is dead. Rest easy, Hunter.
