Dr. Hunter S. Thompson is Dead

I met Dr. Hunter S. Thompson over twenty years ago in the Memorial Hall ballroom at the University of Georgia. We compared notes and decided it would be a good idea that we should not adventure together. We honored our pact until that faithful night at the Woody Creek Tavern outside of Aspen Colorado when intoxicants resulted in gunplay.

I had agreed to remain silent until his big sleep.

A week from Tuesday, March 1, 2005 I will contact the agent and start the book.

The working title ......"Oversleeping for the Dalai Lama"

People On Our Side by Edgar Snow copyright 1944 by Random House is a follow up after Red Star Over China. This may be one of the greatest books I have attempted to read in some time.
First person account of Asia during World War II.
