Lynn Goldsmith: The Good Doctor Hunter S. Thompson 1977
“Richard Nixon has never been one of my favorite people anyway. For years I’ve regarded his existence as a monument to all the rancid genes and broken chromosomes that corrupt the possibilities of the American Dream; he was a foul caricature of himself, a man with no soul, no inner convictions, with the integrity of a hyena and the style of a poison toad. The Nixon I remembered was absolutely humorless; I couldn’t imagine him laughing at anything except maybe a paraplegic who wanted to vote Democratic but couldn’t quite reach the lever on the voting machine.” – Hunter S. Thompson, in “Pageant” Magazine, 1968

‘Just replace “Nixon” with “Trump” and absolutely zero has changed in over 50 years. Today would have been Hunter S. Thompson’s 83rd birthday. We miss your voice, Doc.’
