Perhaps the only thing more depressing than the news of Thompson's death is the ensuing stream of perfunctory, emotionally deadened, and/or impossibly lousy obituaries. After sifting through about 25 obits in both major and minor news outlets, I still have yet to read a really great tribute to the man. Here's one that comes close:

Tom Wolfe in the Wall Street Journal

Read that obit too - it was really good. Somehow it's funny that the best obit for a countercultural icon ended up in the Wall Street Journal.

"But none of those [comedy central punks] fills the Hunter Thompson slot. That's the complex slot for a guy who makes anger look like fun, who knows that outrage requires more than comedy and that truth is more than facts, a guy whose work suggests it's fine to mock the news but better if you report it too."
