Hunter's legacy

Hunter S Thompson, sinner and saint of 20th Century literature, blew his brains out while talking with his wife on the phone a few weeks' ago. I hope his wish to have his ashes scattered by being shot out of a cannon comes to pass.

Hunter had been making plans with his wife, Anita, to set up the Hunter S Thompson Foundation. It will be dedicated to helping people in the prison system "who shouldn't be there."
