Τρεις νεκρολογίες. 

Paul Krassner: "But every editor that I know, myself included, was willing to accept a certain prima donna journalism in the demands he would make to cover a particular story - demanding that we send him to Hawaii with three beautiful maidens he could dictate his stories to, for example." Tom Wolfe: "Hunter's life, like his work, was one long barbaric yawp, to use Whitman's term, [“I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world”] of the drug-fueled freedom from and mockery of all conventional proprieties that began in the 1960s. In that enterprise Hunter was something entirely new, something unique in our literary history." Christopher Hitchens: "He was, above all, a highly polished hater, and could fuel himself as well as ignite others with his sheer contempt for Richard Nixon and all that he stood for. This involved, for some years, a life where there was almost no distance between belief and action."

A Hero of Our Time Hunter S. Thompson 1937-2005.
Πολύ καλός ο Dolan. Και πολύ ενδιαφέρον το Exile. Δύσκολο να φτιάξεις ένα πορτραίτο του Hunter (ή όποιου άλλου). Όταν, νεώτερος, έτρεχα σαν τρελός στα βιβλιοπωλεία του κέντρου για να βρω ένα αντίτυπο των Hell's Angels του, νόμιζα ότι τα γραπτά του ήταν μεν ρεπορτάζ, αλλά με μπόλικη δόση φαντασίας. Ένα mentir-vrai. Τότε σχημάτιζα την εικόνα του με βάση τα σκίτσα του Ralph Steadman. Τα θεωρώ και σήμερα (τα σκίτσα) αναπόσπαστο στοιχείο των άρθρων του.
