    ESPN.com: Page 2 : Fear & Loathing in America

    This article is from September 12, 2001 by Hunter S. Thompson.

    Nine years later, though he is no longer with us, it seems Hunter S. Thompson was certainly dead on about his prediction.

    I had that quote in my signature for a while.


    The Good Doctor is among the greatest Americans who've ever lived, at least in my own personal opinion.

    That is Hunter S Thompson to you.

    You should really read one of his books, maybe you will learn something.

    You haven't been listening to the Pope's insistance that Catholic School Girls wear shorter skirts?

    I'm positive that's what I heard.:eusa_whistle:
