Fear and Loathing in Midwest suburbia: Or, Why we need Hunter S. Thompson today

It is a day just like any other. The sun came up (though it’s hard to tell) and everybody is going about their day like normal. All except me. Today is a somber day for me and any other member of the freak culture. Our colonel is long gone. Fifteen years to the day.

Though he was already 80 when he passed, for many of his fans, it felt far too soon. I know, because I am one of them.
