I just lost my connection for a nanosecond and got bumped. I have no idea why!

I think this sounds like Hunter S. Thompson.

I think this sounds like Emily Dickinson, the Belle of Amherst, her own self.

Hunter S Thompson.

Of course, the other point was that it was February, and, in fact, football season was over....

Emily Dickinson.

From my high school English,as I tried to find a balance to the Gonzo man. About as far apart, except that they thought a lot about death,and then they died.

The blonde assassin passes on/The sun proceeds unmoved/To measure off another day/For an approving God.

21-9 or something.
