The rumors are true. Hunter Thompson’s ashes will be fired from a cannon sometime in August of this year, hopefully several times.
Literally Ashen Wednesday. The ash cloud from Anatahan’s eruption yesterday blanketed Saipan and Tinian yesterday, turning the noon into twilight and covering everything in a fine layer of gritty ash. The noxious cloud was far less exciting on Guam. I didn’t notice any sulfurous smell or ashfall last night, and I was at a party beachside until about 10:00 pm. When I got up this morning however the Blue Torpedo was completely covered in a fine layer of dark gray dirt mottled with dried rain spatter. I guess it rained overnight, pulling the ash out of the atmosphere and onto my car.
