when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro
hunter s thompson's family and friends gathered on his property in colorado for the send-off that he wanted, six months to the day of his suicide. his wife (who's, errr, 32 years old) had his ashes added to fireworks canisters, then erected a statue taller than the statue of liberty featuring the gonzo hand with glowing peyote and two thumbs, and everyone watched as the fireworks were set off. a pretty awesome send-off. who knew that he was tight with john kerry?
