On Hunter S. Thompson --
I've never read anything by the recently deceased Thompson. In online chat, Howard Kurtz discussed Thompson thuss:

Washington, D.C.: Hiya Howard
Thanks for having the chat. I think journalism lost a gem Sunday with the passing of Hunter S. Thompson. His acerbic wit and no holds barred manner of writing made his prose race across the page. You couldn't devour his articles and stories fast enough. Do you see a place for someone of his tenor in today's magazines or features? I am afraid with his passing we may not see the likes of him again. There does not appear to be anyone on the horizon to speak as he spoke. Whaddya think?

Howard Kurtz: We're not allowed to do drugs anymore. One of those annoying corporate media rules.
