Hunter S. Thompson took his own life Sunday, with a gunshot to the head.
A tragedy, all the more so for its failing to be recognized as such. True to form, his fans continue the worship of him in death. His suicide is being hailed as the most fitting end possible. "What else did you expect?" one blogger wrote. "The man was gonzo to the end."
Perhaps I can manage to be faithful to prayer for him now.
