Hell's Angels. It's almost a normal book.

Chas...

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

Excellent... done!

Also added, in honor of the late Johnny Carson:

If it weren't for Philo T. Farnsworth, we'd still be eating frozen radio dinners.

Is it possible to have the quotes appear at the bottom of forum pages randomly?

I hardly ever frequent the info pages.

It was a suicide, a self inflicted gun shot to the head. It's totally in keeping with the man, and I completely respect his choice (no doubt did it with an excellent gun too!).

A paraphrase from Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas:

They all looked like used car salesmen from Dallas, and sweet jesus there were a helluva lot of them at 4am on a Sunday morning. Still humping the American Dream.

ps I saw a live show called Sex Workers' Art Show at a local theatre the day after he died, in his honor. Amazing show!

I see from the followup stories that Hunter S. actually killed himself while talking on the phone with his wife.

What a bastard.
