A sad day for gonzos everywhere. This guy had too much vision and sense to spend any more time in such a depraved, drunken world of atavistic greed like this one. But, God, he was funny. That link about the Kentucky Derby is hysterical. I spent a weekend like that one at the Indianapolis 500 once--same thing, but much bigger, with thick exhaust fumes, and without the retensions to aristrocracy you find in KY.
