Thought for the day

Edward Abbey, a great western writer, once said of patriotism ...

"I know my own nation the best. That's why I despise it the most. And I know and love my own people too, the swine. I'm a patriot. A dangerous man."

This passage was taken from "pages 58-59 of, "The Gonzo Way: A Celebration of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson," by his widow, Anita.

Speaking of Anita Thompson and some gonzo writing, I interviewed her this week, and I'm working on a story about it for The Lone Star Iconoclast. Envy Magazine has also expressed an interest. We'll see how that pans out.
