Share your memories of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson on the Zone today

The Zone fondly remembers Dr. Hunter S. Thompson on the first anniversary of his passing. A force like the Good Doctor can never really pass away; his energy continues to circulate in his brilliant writing, and in the ideas and memories we carry with us daily. Liz and DeppintheHeartofTexas will host a memorial thread on ONBC beginning at 3 p.m. EST. Please stop by and share your memories in the company of others who loved HST.

One way to mark Hunter’s anniversary is to read his work; another is to read remembrances by those who knew him well. Theresa has posted a message from Hunter’s widow, Anita Thompson, on the News & Views board; at ONBC, gilly shared Randy Ray’s interview with BREAKFAST WITH HUNTER filmmaker Wayne Ewing: “When you live next door to a living legend and you’re a filmmaker AND that man next door happens to be one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century . . . well then . . . get the camera and head out the front door,” writes Ray. Fortunately for us, that’s exactly what Wayne Ewing did.

Thanks very much to Liz, DITHOT, theresa and gilly, for helping us mark this day in a way suitable to Hunter’s indomitable spirit. Our hearts go out to Anita and Juan Thompson and Hunter’s legion of friends. If you would like to purchase a Gonzo lapel pin or a black T-shirt with the Gonzo emblem to wear in HST’s memory, they are available HERE.
