Doonesbury’s Hunter Thompson Tribute


Garry Trudeau's tribute to generational icon Hunter S. Thompson, the obvious inspiration for the Uncle Duke character, has been unfolding this week in the Doonesbury strip. It's the Tuesday strip that some people find unsettling. You can read a widely disseminated article about the tribute here, and Editor and Publisher's take here. I'm still waiting for someone to point out how Trudeau was injured in Aspen not too long ago and draw some spooky Lincoln/Kennedy connection. Okay, maybe not.
