Hunter S. Thompson – Five Years

February 20, 2010

The Edge…There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. The others – the living – are those who pushed their control as far as they felt they could handle it, and then pulled back, or slowed down, or did whatever they had to when it came time to choose between Now and Later. But the edge is still Out there.

Hunter S. Thompson (July 18, 1937 – February 20, 2005)

A message from Anita Thompson

    Five long years… Glad to see another great HST tribute on the circuit this year.

    I started re-reading Hell’s Angels this week, to honor the Good Doctor on the anniversary of his voluntary escape from this mortal plane. His work seems more relevant every day and I’d love to know what he would have thought about 2008 through the present! Rest in peace, Dr. Thompson!

    Remember the great times. Remember the great lines! (and if you haven’t already done so, seek out HST’s collections of letters. As well as everything else he wrote. That’s where he really came alive and is still alive – on the printed page).
