The thing about Hunter Thompson... the thing about the great Hunter Thompson was not the drugs and the bats, the thing about Hunter Thompson was that he really was a great reporter. Check out "Hells Angels", or "Campaign Trail '72". He turned the madness of his subjects into the very body of his writing. The thing about Hunter Thompson is that he was writing a news blog thirty years before the internet. A journalist with conscience, wit, and outrage. RIP.
