The Campaign For DA


Hunter S. Thompson Pretty Much Had It Pegged After 9/11

The towers are gone now, reduced to bloody rubble, along with all hopes for Peace in Our Time, in the United States or any other country. Make no mistake about it: We are At War now — with somebody — and we will stay At War with that mysterious Enemy for the rest of our lives.
It will be a Religious War, a sort of Christian Jihad, fueled by religious hatred and led by merciless fanatics on both sides. It will be guerilla warfare on a global scale, with no front lines and no identifiable enemy.

(As a side note: Thompson died and on August 20, 2005, in a private funeral in Aspen, Colorado,  Thompson's cremated ashes were fired from a cannon.   Memo to self: Have will change to require ashes to be fired out of a cannon from courthouse bell tower.)
