Remembering Hunter S. Thompson

NBC just had a clip of Hunter S. Thompson firing some nasty single-shot pistol. From his compact utility tractor. In a snowstorm. While wearing a bathrobe. And barefoot. That was probably the single funniest thing I've seen on the TV in, I dunno, maybe a year or more.

It's probably not worth putting too much thought into why Thompson killed himself. He was certainly not a young man and perhaps was staring down a nasty terminal illness, but even neglecting that possibility, it's amazing that he lived as long as he did.
