My favorite Gonzo quote:
From Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas -
"Hallucinations are bad enough. But after a while you learn to cope with things like seeing your dead grandmother crawling up your leg with a knife in her teeth. Most acid fanciers can handle that sort of thing.
But nobody can handle that other trip - the possibility that any freak with a $1.98 can walk into the Circus Circus and suddenly appear in the sky over downtown Las Vegas twelve times the size of God, howling anything that comes into his mind. No, this is not a town for psychedelic drugs. Reality itself is much too twisted."
