He shot himself dead.
What the fuck?!??
i'm not sure of the impact of this, but I bothers me that someone who seemed to take such joy in saying "fuck you" to everything said fuck it and left.
Especially weird when you consider the amount of booze and drugs he pumped into himself didn't kill him.
And is it just me or is it kind of pathetic that so many reprts on this need to mention Johnny Depp so people will know who he was? I like Johnny Depp a lot, but it's just a sad statement about our society that someone with credentials and a lagacy like Thompson's needs a pop culture icon reference to clarify his existence.
Of course that kind of stuff might be part of the reason....?
enough babbleing, I'm going to go read one of his books.
