i've been familiar with the works of The Good Doc since i was a child. my dad is an old school acid head and his books have been lurking on the shelves in my house for as long as i could remember. my real interest began when my dear dear corrupting uncle gave me a copy of the movie "Fear and Loathing" when i was eleven. it took me a couple years before i could get my hands on the book (my father wasn't exactly comfortable with his 11 year old daughter getting into this sort of thing) but i got around him. being young, i of course barely understood a lot of what was going on but it all struck me a hilarious, well written and intelligent. now it is an insightful earful at the underbelly of politics and is quite refreshing. his views are sadly missed, because i would LOVE to see what he would have to say about the fiasco that american politics have become.
so, the bush family got in the white house again. WHO'S COMING WITH ME TO PARAGUAY?!?
