Dear Editor:Well, there’s a jolly idea: To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Hunter Thompson’s landmark “Fear & Loathing On The Campaign Trail ’72,” they are going to have a book signing at the Wyly-family-owned Explore Booksellers. If that doesn’t inspire a king-hell haunting of someone by the departed doctor, it won’t be for lack of trying.I don’t know if this was Juan’s idea or Walter Isaacson’s, but why not just set fire to Hunter’s corpse and shoot it from a canon? That would show more respect. Do Carl Bernstein and Doug Brinkley really know what they’re doing?Jay CowanOld Snowmass
