Saluting Doctor Gonzo

A belated birthday shoutout to the godfather of drug-addled journalism and hero to writers everywhere, Hunter Stockton Thomspon (July 18, 1937 – Februarly 20, 2005).

There’s little the Deconstruction can say about Hunter that hasn’t already been covered by the media, by Hollywood and by Hunter¬†himself. Suffice it to say he opened a new world of American journalism and changed forever the way writers view themselves as characters in their own stories. He also forged a vital, lasting link between the written word and the possibilities of pharmacopeia.

With that in mind, we salute Hunter in the best way we know how – with a sweet sample of of his own outrageousness. Enjoy this short but definitive rejection letter, through which Hunter (it’s not signed by him, but who else could have written it?) lets a young fan know that his submission won’t be needed.
