Hunter S. Thompson Killed himself on 20Feb2005. So long and Mahalo.

From the N.Y. Times:
Hunter Stockton Thompson was born in Louisville, Ky, on July 18, 1939, the son of an insurance agent. He was educated in the public school system and joined the United States Air Force after high school. There, he was introduced to journalism, covering sports for an Air Force newspaper at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. He was honorably discharged in 1958 and then worked a series of jobs writing for small-town newspapers.

It was in the heat of deadline that gonzo journalism was born while he was writing a story about the Kentucky Derby for Scanlan's magazine, he recounted years later in an interview in Playboy magazine.

"I'd blown my mind, couldn't work," he told Playboy. "So finally I just started jerking pages out of my notebook and numbering them and sending them to the printer. I was sure it was the last article I was ever going to do for anybody."

Among his books were "Hell's Angels," "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," "Fear and Loathing on the Campiagn Trail '72," "The Great Shark Hunt," "Generation of Swine" and "Songs for the Doomed."

Yahoo! News - Shiites, Kurds Winners in Iraq Election

The Kurds and Shi'ites control Iraq... Of course the Kurds want their own country and the Shi'ites are in control becasue *one* cleric told them to vote.

I hope everyone understands that the Shi'ites do not want a democracy, they want a Cleric to tell them what to do.

What we have here is a Shi'ite clerics wet dream and Turkey's worst nightmare.
