Man O' The Day

"If you're going to be crazy, you have to get paid for it or else you're going to be locked up."

—Hunter S. Thompson

I read that quote in the Fifth Spot on the Bicycle Retailer and Industry News web site today. He was one of the great ones in my eyes, old Hunter S. (aka Doctor Gonzo, Raul Duke, et al). There was no one like him before he came along, but in is wake were swimming many, like myself, who tried to capture his raw, real, in medias res journalistic style. Don't like him? You are missing out. Read "Hells Angels" and I bet you change your tune.

Love the above pic, it captures so much of his spirit! Right down to the IBM Selectric on the business end of a shotgun...
