He wasn’t exactly a role model, but he was a good writer, and he had some keen insight into the human condition as well as politics.  I first became aware of Thompson when I read “Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail”.  Jimmy Carter was running for President, and I was a student at Georgia Tech. Thompson was the first person to predict Carter would win the election.  Subsequently, I read several of his books and all his articles published in Rolling Stone and other periodicals.
