Forty years of fear and loathing

Hunter S. Thompson on football and Democracy, 1973

Somehow I am watching NFL football and listening to Dick Gregory in January 1972 at UCLA, but was dictating to my handheld Hunter S. Thompson about the Washington football team and Richard Nixon, Edward Muskie, Edward Bennett Williams, Dave Gurgin, pp 38-41 of Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, 2010, Bill Kilmer, Dick Gregory;

Those poor bastards could not have known what they were doing when they croaked a Doctor of Journalism out of the press box.

Gregory eerily says some of the same things: even by 1972 the press was run by a bunch of crackers and Nazi-sympathizers.
