    I started reading Skin Horse daily about eight years ago and I still don’t know what’s going on. I only learned a day or two ago (from the comments) that many of the characters are from the Land of Oz.

    No. Thompson wrote for Rolling Stone and was a liberal. He was a serious user of psychedelic drugs. He hung out with and wrote a book about the Hells Angels (until one of them decided to beat the snot out of him.) He covered the protests at the 1968 Democratic Convention and wrote about getting tear gassed. He also famously interviewed Nixon at the height of the the Watergate scandal. Of all the White House press pool, Nixon selected Thompson to ride with him in the Presidential Limo as the end of Nixon’s presidency approached. There was one stipulation: they couldn’t talk about politics. Instead they spent a couple hours talking about college football – What teams were hot, what plays were pivotal that season, and the careers of past college stars. The ride provided Nixon with a brief escape of the stress from his presidency collapsing around him, and provided the public with a view of Nixon as a human being with impressive intelligence and interests power and politics.

    I’d be surprised if Hunter Thompson (the basis for Duke) and Roger Stone didn’t cross paths during the Nixon administration.

    Several years ago a horrible colleague quit. He called our boss a few weeks later and offered to come back, but at a 30% raise. My boss said that the bozo was surprised we didn’t accept his offer.
