Sorry for the non-technology post…
One of the great authors of our time, Hunter S. Thompson, died Sunday February 20th, 2005, of a self inflicted Gunshot. Hunter was one of my favorite authors since I first picked up "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 1972," back in college.

"Hunter Thompson, R.I.P. He was the Warren Zevon of literature. If Bill Lee still pitched for the Red Sox, he would have taken the day off Monday out of respect for Uncle Duke. "
– Dan Shaughnessy, Boston Globe
