    We'll Miss you, Raoul Duke

    I don't know if anyone else has heard yet but one of the most mythical journalists ever killed himself last night in his home. Im speaking of course...of Hunter s. Thompson (who sometimes went under the alias Raoul Duke) he has written many controversial articles in his career as well as many controversial novels... "Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas" probably being his most famous....just wanted to hook him up with a little lament. R.I.P dude.

    Although he was a drug addict???
    That doesn´t have anything to do with his writing skills!!!

    It´s very sad, that people who say, that his dead is a loss for us, haven´t understood anything about his life (and i think drugs were a part of his live)...

    His dead makes me very sad, but people who talk about a dead brilliant guy like you do make me even more sad.

    Welcome to the circus human!! The attractions are you and what you can see with a little bit imagination...

    Drug addict who wrote political pieces and who is praised by kiddies and the New York Times? Must've been a Democrap.

    I never really read his work. Therefore, I am not affected by his Death. When famous people die, it really doesn't bother me much, but only on a few occasions I'd stop and think about it. One of those occasions would be the Death of Tupac Amaru Shakur. Now he was someone important in my opinion.

    C'mon Tychoides. We can be a bit more mature than that.

    C'mon jkun17, learn sarcasm.

    Or you could realize it was a joke. But not really.
