The Amazing Voice of What's His Name?

The amazing voice of what's his name is on my mind today. I'm talking about what's his name, that writer who wrote Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. What is it about that title, anyway? It has a ring to it, don't you think? The "L" sound in "loathing" and the "L" sound in "Las Vegas" resonate and work in an alliterative pattern. Of course I'm talking about the writer Hunter S. Thompson. His voice is, as I have written elsewhere, like the voice of a ventriloquist. It seems to emmanate from inside a machine, with intense rapidity, sarcasm, and aggression. But what a nice guy he was when he appeared on Charlie Rose. A magnificent interview, which you can find on YouTube. Makes you want to run out and read a new credit card blog.
