Thought it a little peculiar to see Hunter S. Thompsons suicide note on the “strong words” for today.
I guess it’s a reminder for us that getting old sucks? Or what can happen to a man if he doesn’t take care of himself? I’m not sure.
HST was one of those great American authors who figured he lived long enough and hard enough to go ahead and snuff himself out before things got any worse. He was wheelchair-bound at the end, and that obviously had an effect on him.
“I’m always bitchy, No Fun–for anybody”
Did he think that he was causing everyone around him too much grief so he figured he’d bid himself adeiu?
As for the “no more games” part of his note, he was talking about football. Dude hung on long enough to see who was going to win the Super Bowl before he pulled the trigger.
And people think sports don’t matter…
