Football Season is Over..

Rolling Stone has published a story containing Hunter S. Thompson's suicide note and the details of his wake. The key detail is that his ashes were shot from a 153-foot-tall cannon with the Gonzo symbol at the top. Read, enjoy, and remember Hunter as he was, a blade of truth in a world of deception.

Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men's reality. Weird heroes and mold-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of "the rat race" is not yet final.
-- HUNTER S. THOMPSON, 1937-2005
