Well, just a quick note, and a link to a more important post. Steve Gilliard provided an exceptional post on the passing of Hunter Thompson today. You must go read it.
“Which is why Hunter Thompson was a hero. He was honest to a fault and mean to a fault. In a world where journalism has become about asking questions politely and fiction about settling grudges with parents and schoolmates, he was about something far more important.”
Quite right. Too often as journalsts we settle for what we’re given, and it’s true at almost every level. We could all learn a little something from the man’s legacy.
