Marc Canter says that

All bloggers owe their heritage to the original Gonzo.

Amen.
The subjectivity and raw opinion in HST’s work colours my writing to this day. it is difficult for me to write professional, technical documents without wanting to launch into a preternatural screed (two words I learned from the Good Doctor) on the opic I a writing on.
I was accused by a VP in my company last week of not being able to dumb myself down to deal with where our customers are in relation to where I am. HST had no patience with dumbing down, or pulling punches. He told people what they needed to know in as visceral a manner as he could.
May blogging honour the heritage of HST.
