He was a true gentleman and very sober ...
My idol ...
Almost hard to believe he wrote fear and loathing in las vegas when you hear that message... So maybe it was not all fiction ?
It's a very thin line between fiction and reality...
Hunter walked on both sides...

The Doctor would have offered a few shots of Wild Turkey, before he brandished any weapons ...
He did have some manners ...
I sure miss him. Have been thinking about him a lot lately.

I used to work in that industry. It was fun sometimes.

We excuse his nastiness to others because we enjoy his work and we can relate to his frustrations of things, and estimate it in ways an appropriate response to the mad world we live in- but imagine being married to that guy, or worse yet being his kid.

It is all fun and games when it didn't happen to you.
