Gonzo Journalist's Suicide Note Published

"No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun -- for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax -- This won't hurt."

Hunter S. Thompson's suicide note is to be featured in the upcoming edition of Rolling Stone. The above is an excerpt. Thompson, widely acclaimed for his intoxicated musings and unique style of immersion journalism, shot himself in February.
