Gonzo but not forgotten

Today is the 10-year anniversary of the death of Hunter S. Thompson, the longtime Woody Creek resident and prolific writer of Gonzo prose. The maverick journalist ran for Pitkin County Sheriff on the Freak Power platform in 1970, losing to Carrol D. Whitmire in a contest that was chronicled in "The Battle of Aspen," written by Thompson for the Rolling Stone. Thompson was 67 at the time of his death.
