Hunter S. Thompson fans out there might notice that the title of this blog is a direct reference to HST's National Affairs Desk. I choose the title with great respect and love for the man and his work. He is a hero of mine. Much of the inspiration for this blog belongs to him. If it looks like I am trying to steal some of his legend, I could only wish.
