Oh My God

Hunter S. Thompson is dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The earth just slipped on its axis.

He was the greatest journalist who ever lived. Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail set the bar so high for political journalism that nobody will ever touch it. His collected writings were like canon; no writer ever had more influence on me or on my life and the paths I’ve chosen than the good Doctor.

I’m numb.

Let us go, for the long road calls us. — Dante
