Hunter Thompson

Am I the only person my age who never bothered to read Fear and Loathing? Or anything else of his? Now that I think of it, I skimmed an essay of his a couple of years ago--I think it was on Iraq or Afghanistan. He didn't know what he was talking about and his style didn't strike me as distinctively good.

I expect all the library copies of his books will have long lists of holds, so even if I wanted to figure out what the fuss was about I'd have to wait a few months. I think I'll just keep reading Blue Clay People instead. I wonder if he would have wanted it that way...
