Wife details family gathering with Hunter S. Thompson dead in chair.

ASPEN — Hunter S. Thompson heard the ice clinking.
The literary champ was sitting in his command post kitchen chair, a piece of blank paper in his
favorite typewriter, dead of a self-inflicted gunshot through the mouth hours earlier. But a small circle of family and friends gathered around with stories, as he wished, with glasses full of his favored elixir — Chivas Regal on ice.

Morbid, but I've heard worse. Me, I want to go out in a flaming barge, Viking-style. That is, if there's more than a Ziploc's worth of me left.
