Another Brother Down...

As Tom has just posted, we lost another one of the good guys today.

Here's part of the BBC obituary, shizzolated to soften the blow.

Gangsta S Thompson, tha American counterculture gangsta has bizzle found dead at his hizzy in Colorado with my hoes on my side, and my strap on my back.
Thompsons sizzay Juan, found his body. He said tha 67-year-old shiznot himself.

He is best-known fo` his 1972 account of a drug-addled Nevada triznip, Fear n Loath'n in Las Vegas like a motha fucka. Otha books is Hells Angels n Generizzles of Swine like a motha fucka.

Thompson pioneered "gonzo journalism", a factual style in whizzay tha playa was an essential P-to-tha-izzart of tha story, n was an acute observa of American life. Every brutha ain't a brutha.
