Hunter S. Thomson, May God Rest His Drug Addled Soul

That favorite quotations thingie over there on your right throws up random quotations of this or that person that appealed to me. It changes every time you log in. The following one, however, deserves a bit more permanent place here:

We are turning into a nation of whimpering slaves to fear—fear of war, fear of poverty, fear of random terrorism, fear of getting down-sized or fired because of the plunging economy, fear of getting evicted for bad debts or suddenly getting locked up in a military detention camp on vague charges of being a terrorist sympathizer.

--Hunter S. Thomson

There will be few like him again...hopefully there may be one or two...

...witha bit of luck and a following wind...
