As the Wonkette comments, "Hunter Thompson's death has created a small cottage industry for men of a certain age to tell their pilgrimage fable." One person who is unlikely to be spilling his memories, however, is GWB.
This insight comes from Hunter S. Thompson, on meeting Dubya at a Super Bowl party in Houston in 1974: He knew who I was, at that time, because I had a reputation as a writer. I knew he was part of the Bush dynasty. But he was nothing, he offered nothing, and he promised nothing. He had no humor. He was insignificant in every way and consequently I didn't pay much attention to him. But when he passed out in my bathtub, then I noticed him. I'd been in another room, talking to the bright people. I had to have him taken away.
