Jak and Jeff understand why Hunter S. Thompson killed himself last week, and come close to condoning the suicide. (Let me emphasize the "come close" part of that sentence, for I don't actually believe they condone it.) I've read none of Thompson's works, but I understand his importance, and if Jak is going to re-read his works this summer, then I should at least read one. I'll go with the obvious choice, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas then maybe work my way through some of his essays, the obvious essay choice being "The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved". What other essays are Thompson classics?
