More on Hunter S. Thompson

Jessica of Peace Dividend sends more Thompson news via email:

You’ve probably heard this from a hundred other people by now, but: the L.A. Times reports that Hunter S. Thompson spent his past few months in considerable pain, after a) hip replacement surgery, b) back surgery, and c) breaking his leg on a recent jaunt to Hawaii.

That’d do it for just about anyone, I figure.

Also, at the Guardian: some of Thompson’s most famous quotes and a fan’s recollections, which include Thompson’s recent response to an interviewer who asked whether he had any regrets:

Those I have are so minor. Would I leave my Keith Richards hat with the silver skull on it in the coffee shop at LaGuardia? I wouldn’t do that again. But overall, no. I don’t have any regrets.
