Good to see the economist gets it, you can see it in his writing over the years. If anything, I respect him more for having the balls to pull the trigger, least he ended things on his own terms.

No he didn't.

He ended up just being weak.

On his own terms would have been pissing off enough people that a lynch mob showed up at his door and having an audience for his parting shot.

I doubt he could have said things more bluntly than he did. He attracted controversy but I don't think he actively courted it, he was just himself.

Barring a convincing video auto-epitaph I think we're going to have to agree to disagree.

*shrugs* I don't claim to be exactly unbiased, Hunter is something little short of a role model where I'm concerned.

i just heard hst killed himself today, Obviously their was a motive for it other then giving up, Hunter was himself and more of a role model then any person ive ever seen on tv, He was a dope fiend to the extents that his subcontious was ignorant, had he been a lesser man he would of been diagnoised with bipolar disease and given medication to make him better, but no peanuts man thats the 1 thing thats good for you, why not anything worth doing were going to be doing right

jesus terrible vibrations in this place, was their no communication in this server or have we sunken to the level of dumb beasts, I have been following his work for about a year and heard he was dead a few months ago and heard he killed himself yesterday, gonzo is truly being true to urself with no regrets all the time of course trying to be someone else would be worthy of your manners, sorry i dont have what it takes to speak about all ur political problems on a level that makes me look smart cause i have always been stupid anyways, im just some kid with the soul of a teenage girl trapped inside some emotional nazi. i mean HST was a great journalist who was trying to do the world a favour so i would give your thanks if anything.

What's an emotional nazi? A soup nazi won't give you soup, a grammar nazi is something you should probably hire, what does an emotional nazi do?
