Hero

HST is one of my heroes. This is a great movie about him, his passion, and those heady days of my generation in the late 1960s-70s. This movie captures the excitement, the struggle and the hope of those days. 

Thompson was a true patriot. George W. Bush killed him. We can only imagine his views on Donald Trump and what Trumpism says about America and the American Dream. 

I wish that he could have stood it and was here to put his words to the frustration, fear, loathing and lost hope we have felt since Trump's emergence as a force in the Republican Party. Nobody could do it better.
