Quick response to an arcticle within the site

Posted to WritersAndGenres




Maybe I should check first to see if anyone has brought this up....oh well.

Anyways. The Hunter Thompson Article. Though it is a well written and informative piece, I saw 2 things that didn't seem to agree with my resaerch on the man.
1. That Kerouac was a big influence on him. Alot of what I have found is that Thompson kind of thought Jack sucked. He called Big Sur stupid. At one point, he got annoyed with a girlfriend who was into Kerouac. But, who knows...Thompson has been known to lie. :)

Ah. Can't remember the other thing now....Have a good day, everbody!
