It really is about guns and a guy who played with them.
Thompson was in his own words, a true "Gonzo", a rebel without a revolution.
An idealist lacking any true direction. He spent his life taking pot shots at any target that popped up.
I never knew him and was not a true "fan" but there was something fascinating about Thompson- a
suggestion or hint of a great saint or monster that lurked just below the surface.
We'll never know now.
Here's one to you Hunter. I wonder what you really were.
