hero worship

An international drug trafficker is a criminal and usually a murderer; the drug addict walking the street is one of his victims. But thanks to (Assistant US Attorney General Lanny) Breuer, we’re now in the business, officially, of jailing the victims and enabling the criminals.

    Did you ever meet Hunter s. Thompson? I know it’s been quite a while since he worked for rolling stone. Jw

    Years ago, when I was in my twenties, I was asked by a book publishing company to edit an anthology of “Gonzo Journalism.” Not long into the project I realized there was no such thing as “Gonzo Journalism” as a genre per se, it just meant “written by Hunter Thompson.” But I was broke and needed the job. So I called Hunter to ask him what he thought. He said, “That’s a shitty assignment.” I told him I probably agreed. He said, “How badly do you need the money?” I said, “Badly.” He said, “Well, good luck, but I’m not going to help you with it. No offense.” I said none taken and that was it. That was the only time I ever talked to Hunter. It was a funny call, though.
