    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...

    Imagine the new guy who walks in to fix hunter's tv... being held at gun point by hunter sputtering insanities... You can make a carreer out of that anecdote !

    The Doctor would have offered a few shots of Wild Turkey, before he brandished any weapons ...


    He did have some manners ...

    You were a psychiatrist that worked with paranoid manic depressives with violent tendencies?

    Fascinating!

    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.

    he was a piece of work, all right

    It wasn't fiction at all. The FLiLV is a very stylized account of what (mostly) really happened. Some stretches, sure...but the photos and tapes exist, mostly in the vaults of Rolling Stone and probably Sports Illustrated.

    IMHO, trying to determine exactly what was real and what was fiction, as it applies to Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, kinda misses the point. "Buy the ticket, take the ride."

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