We all knew that Hunter S. Thompson was crazy and heavily armed, but I guess I had always hoped that some of it was just an act. Evidently not.
I didn't agree with his viewpoint, either politically or morally, but when Dr. Thompson was at his peak, man was he a kick to read.
ESPN.com, for whom he worked in his last years, has Thompson's final column from last week. It's about the new sport he invented, Shotgun Golf, where skeet shooters compete against golfers, trying to blow their Titleists out of the air with double-aught buckshot. Oh yeah, and he also got Bill Murray involved in it somehow.
