A little HST in all of us

It's Hunter S Thompson's birthday!

So go out today and celebrate the life of Hunter S. His journalism and social commentary are timeless. So open one of his books, take a stand, live by your own set of rules and most of all have fun, even if it's only for a day.

Hunter S. Thompson on Yassir Arafat:

Yassir has never been well-liked or popular in the Arab League nations. He is ugly and loud, and spittle flies off his lips when he talks. His beard is unclean and his eyes are like bags of dirty water. The starch in his uniforms gets rancid after two or three days of soaking up fatty acids, and even good friends avoid him in private. -13 October 1986 [Generation of Swine, p170]

I wish the bastard that stole my "Songs of the Doomed" p/back would bring it back.
