    Rolling Stone to Publish Thompson Note
    Sep 08 11:29 AM US/Eastern

    NEW YORK - Rolling Stone, the magazine that was home for years to Rolling Stone to Publish Thompson Note, will publish a note written by the gonzo journalist days before he committed suicide in February.

    Douglas Brinkley, the presidential historian who is also Thompson's official biographer, writes that a Feb. 16 note may be Thompson's final written words. It reads:

    "No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun _ for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax _ This won't hurt."

    Hunter left the note for his wife, Anita. He shot himself four days later at his home in Aspen, Colo., after weeks of pain from a host of physical problems that included a broken leg and a hip replacement.

    Written in black marker, the note was titled, "Football Season Is Over."

    Brinkley writes in the magazine, on newsstands Friday, "February was always the cruelest month for Hunter S. Thompson. An avid NFL fan, Hunter traditionally embraced the Super Bowl in January as the high- water mark of his year. February, by contrast, was doldrums time."

    Most of Thompson's early writings appeared in Rolling Stone. In pieces of great length, he often portrayed himself as a wildly intoxicated observer and participant.

    The writer's ashes were blown into the sky in Woody Creek, Colo., amid fireworks on Aug. 20.

    The ramblings of an idiot do not qualify as "substance".
