If These Two were with us today, I'd really be enjoying myself tonight:



Dominick Dunne: Born: October 29, 1925 - Died: August 26, 2009

I can't imagine how something like what we're experiencing, this year, would strike him.
What the hell would be his interpretation of the world's events? He was like a translator.

AND-



Hunter Stockton Thompson: Born: July 18, 1937 - Died: February 20, 2005

He was an adrenaline junkie. He'd love this. He'd go so far as to make perfect sense of it. He had so much heart in everything he did. He'd take the chaotic input the rest of us are getting and sum it up for us.

1. I miss JFK Jr as well, and Paul Wellstone

and probably lots of others I can't think about at the moment who died before their time...

2. Hey!

How about Molly Ivins!

3. Definitely

Dunne and the Good Doctor would have some great takes on that orange snake oil con man.
