Fucking hell. I walked in the door tonight, telling Lou that there was something evil in the air tonight, something wrong. People were nastier, more petty, bitter.
ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – Hunter S. Thompson, the acerbic counterculture writer who popularized a new form of journalism in books like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, fatally shot himself Sunday night at his Aspen-area home, his son said. He was 67.
“Hunter prized his privacy and we ask that his friends and admirers respect that privacy as well as that of his family,” Juan Thompson said in a statement released to the Aspen Daily News.
Pitkin County Sheriff Bob Braudis, a personal friend of Thompson, confirmed the death to the News. Sheriff’s officials did not return calls to The Associated Press late Sunday.
I’m extremely fucking depressed. I’m wildly speculating, but i wonder if he found out that he had some progressively degenerative disorder.
