Hunter S. Thompson, Dead at 67

Hunter S. Thompson has shot himself. I've never read any of Thompson's works but perhaps I should, if only for cultural reference. Even many on the Right concede that his early works were brilliant and innovative.

I can't help but wonder how long it will be before the more wacky folks over at Democratic Underground start coming up with conspiracy theories though. Thompson was an opponent of the Bush Administration and I'm sure someone will accuse Bush of being responsible for the suicide. You can set your watch by the DU nuts.
