Gonzo Fusillade

Looks like the ashes of Hunter S. Thompson will be shot from a cannon if relatives get their wish.

If the Thompson job were his, (fireworks impresario) Williams said, he would probably blast the ashes from a 12-inch-diameter mortar 800 feet into the sky. Then a second, window-rattling blast would scatter them amid a blossom of color 600 feet across.

Cool. That’ll be a hell of way to exit this earth.
