Hunter S. Thompson on 9.11

Bad news 

Khannea Suntzu's insight:

Hunter S. Thompson, great writer, he foreshadowed our current political situation with the world one day after the world trade center and I will quote.

"The towers are gone now, reduced to bloody rubble, along with all hopes for peace in our time, in the U.S. or any other country. Make no mistake about it: we are at War now- with somebody- and we will stay at war with that strange and mysterious enemy for the rest of our lives."

"It will be a religious war, a sort of christian jihad,fueled by religious hatred and led by merciless fanatics on both sides. It will be guerrilla warfare on a global scale, with no front lines and no identifiable enemy."

"This is going to be an expensive war, and victory is not guaranteed-for anyone, and certainly not for a baffled little creep like George W. Bush. All he knows is that his father started a war a long time ago, and that he, the goofy child- president, has been chosen by fate and the global oil industry to finish it off"

Page 90. "Hey Rube" letter dated September 12, 2001.

 

Paul William Roberts in his Globe and Mail article of Saturday, February 26, 2005 wrote the following: Hunter telephoned me on Feb. 19, the night before his death. He sounded scared. It wasn't always easy to understand what he said, particularly over the phone, he mumbled, yet when there was something he really wanted you to understand, you did. He'd been working on a story about the World Trade Center attacks and had stumbled across what he felt was hard evidence showing the towers had been brought down not by the airplanes that flew into them but by explosive charges set off in their foundations. Now he thought someone was out to stop him publishing it: "They're gonna make it look like suicide," he said. "I know how these bastards think . . ."

 

Now check out this February 25 Associated Press story about Thompson's death. Sounds a lot like a professional hit with a silencer: "I was on the phone with him, he set the receiver down and he did it. I heard the clicking of the gun," Anita Thompson told the Aspen Daily News in Friday's editions. She said her husband had asked her to come home from a health club so they could work on his weekly ESPN column. Thompson said she heard a loud, muffled noise, but didn't know what had happened. "I was waiting for him to get back on the phone," she said.

The former Captain James T. Kirk wants to crowdfund a water pipeline from Seattle down to Lake Mead in Nevada to fix California's megadrought. That’s a bad idea. It’s cheaper and better to build desalination plants. They produce drinking water at a cost of less than a tenth of a cent per gallon. The power requirement to desalinate seawater for a family of four is about the same as the total power consumption of their refrigerator.
