Yeah, I don't believe any of that. MAYBE he had a few days like that when he was in his 20s.

Thompson was very good at creating his own legend. Even his suicide fits right into it.

Never believed anything else written by or about him. No reason to start with this. He missed his true calling which wasn't gonzo journalism, it was doing publicity. He should have had more clients than just himself.

That and people being exponentially more sedentary than any time in history. Hunter S was interesting but I lose all respect for anyone who quits life.
