For those of you who don't know, Thompson was found at his home in Colorado dead (feb. 20) from a gun shot wound to the head. He took his own life.
And for those of you who don't know he was the best writer of all time, the gonzo of journalism. He's met, talked with and wrote about everyone from Timothy Leary to President Nixon. He is the one who wrote Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, a story about his incredible \"trip\" through the heart of the American Dream.
Mr. Thompson had inspired me to take up journalism and become a writer about 2 years back. I was completely shocked and horrified by the news. For me, it's too early to delve too deep into my emotions...I will post something more about this sometime in the future.
