Doesn't look like you care, either. Compassionate conservatism at its finest.

But in case you do care, Thompson pioneered the art of "gonzo journalism," which made the writer as important as the subject that he or she covered. He wrote "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and several other books, and his work was routinely excerpted in Rolling Stone.
