In memorium

I want to mark the sad passing of the great Hunter S Thompson.

"Work was impossible. The geeks had broken my spirit. They had done too many things wrong. It was never like this for Mencken. He lived like a Prussian gambler--sweating worse than Bryant on some nights and drunker than Judas on others. It was all a dehumanized nightmare... and these raddled cretins have the gall to complain about my deadlines."
-- Hunter Thompson, "Bad Nerves in Fat City", Generation of Swine

HST's words: Patrick Roy and Warren Zevon -- two champions at the top of their game
