Murdering the messengers, fabricating the news

By Jerry Mazza
Online Journal Contributing Writer

March 19, 2005—Are we going to let this pass? That 67-year old Hunter Thompson allegedly blew himself away while he was on the phone with his wife and while she heard the muffled sound? And while his son, son's wife and grandson, were in the house at the same time? And his son thought the shot was the sound of a book falling from a shelf? And that Thompson did this despite the fact that he was in good health, mentally and physically, looking forward to his wife's arrival to work on a column with him? And that, more importantly, Thompson was also working on two highly sensitive stories?

One was a book-length story that the government may have been involved in 9/11 and that bombs were the cause of the Twin Towers' collapse not the planes that flew into them. This based on explosive evidence Thompson had stumbled upon. The other story was that sex slave rings were connected to the White House, equally explosive to the wrong people.

In fact, Thompson thought someone was out to stop him from publishing the first story. In his own words, "They're gonna make it look like suicide. I know how these bastards think," as reported to and by journalist Paul William Roberts in an article for the Toronto Globe and Mail. Also reported was that Thompson's body was found in a chair in the kitchen in front of his typewriter, where he was also purportedly on the phone with his wife. The word "counselor," his own enigmatic "Rosebud," the key perhaps to his true killer, was the only word found typed in the center of a page of stationery from the Fourth Amendment Foundation, an organization he discovered ironically to defend victims of unwarranted search and seizure.

The truth is other writers have dealt with this material of the Twin Towers going down due to detonation of bombs throughout the structures. And there have been stories by other writers about Gannongate and the GannonCannon respectively. But perhaps none of these writers were as high profile. And in all due respect, would not be as effectively gonzo as the man who brought you, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72, among others. F & L '72 gave you all the squalid details and then some of the selection of Tricky Dick, who was to face off with the likes of Hubert Horatio Humphrey or Ed 'Ibogaine' Muskie. Thompson was a generation's main scribe, who told all, including what was under the eyeballs and skin of his subject.

You will know you have spoken the truth when you are angrily denounced; and you will know you have spoken both truly and well when you are visited by the thought police.
