Happy Birthday Hunter S. Thompson


Today July 18th is Hunter S. Thompson’s birthday. The Good Doctor would have been 72. I am sure that everyone will be toasting his spirit tonight in a variety of ways. Over at Anita’s website a request has been made to celebrate his memory by having a tree planted in Colorado. For full details and how to donate towards this check out Owlfarmblog

Here at TotallyGonzo we would like to mark the occasion by requesting your support in petitioning The Modern Library to induct Fear and Loathing: On The Campaign Trail ’72 into their collection. Previously they have inducted Hells Angel’s and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

To show your support for Hunter and this fantastic book please visit the link below and add your signature. Who knows maybe with enough signatures we can get something done!

Thanks and Happy Birthday Doc !
