Hunter S. Thompson

One of his best works, in my opinion, was "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas".

Hunter was one of those writers you either got, or didn't. although his lifestyle was on the edge and at times admittedly illegal, he made his mark in american literature, despite objections of his morals, or "hobbies".

he was an avid (or acid, depending on who you talk to...) motorcyclist as well.

you can't call suicide "the cowards way out" until you've walked a mile in the shoes of one who's made the personal decision that it's the last alternative in their life...........
