My heart feels like an alligator

Goodbye Hunter S Thompson

As the ultra-perspicacious Weaver asked right away - what would Doonesbury do about
Duke? Seems like many asked, and the answer is that Duke is no longer
Thompson. Well, noone is, now, but they
both were once
. Tom
Wolfe's obit
is OK.
Me, I don't know - but Carl Fussell of Mpls, MN wrote

Thompson hated you almost as much as he hated Duke. If you had any restraint you'd stop insulting him with the gross parody and ditch Duke. The man killed himself for God's sake. Show some class.

Title from Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas: a book I can't recommended highly enough..
