Otherwise, life has been pretty good so far in the early dawn of 2013 and as usual I’m looking forward to another chartered spin around the sun.
The title of this post is Thompson’s reaction to the reception of his first sports journalistic piece The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved. The birth of gonzo journalism, “written under duress”.
