Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone: The Essential Writing of Hunter S. Thompson - Hunter S. Thompson, Jann Wenner

Unbelievable that this was written in 1972. But sadly, it is more true than ever:


"The argument was familiar. I had even made it myself, here and there, but I was beginning to sense something very depressing about it. How many more of these goddamn elections are we going to have to write off as lame but "regrettably necessary" hold actions? And how many more of these stinking, double-downer sideshows will we have to go through before we can get ourselves straight enough to put together some kind of national election that will give me and the fourty million I tend to agree with a chance to vote for something, instead of always being faced with that old familiar choice between the lesser of two evils?"
