Response to Jeff Wells on Hunter S. Thompson

This is the TRUNews response to Jeff Well's post entitled The going got weird

Check out Clyde Lewis' take on this.

Thanks, Jeff, for synthesizing these threads so well.

I would pose one thing:

That this quote by HST's son Juan has some sort of meaning beyond the obvious: "He stomped terra", which on the surface says Hunter stomped the ground. But the word play is obvious. He STomped has HST's initials encoded. If you re-arrange it, it can say: "He's Tom PED Terra". Geez, given the Gosch/Gucket thing, what could that PED refer to? As for terra, you can combine it with PED to get Ped-Terra, which is similar to pederast. Pederast = pedterra? From the Oxford English Dictionary:

"Ibid. 332 A boy alleged to have been abused *pæderastically."

"Socially the paederast is the most isolated of homosexuals. "

From HST's Kingdom of Fear:

"The difference between an outlaw and a war criminal is the difference between a pedophile and a Pederast: The pedophile is a person who thinks about sexual behavior with children, and the Pederast does these things. He lays hands on innocent children, he penetrates them and changes their lives forever.

Being the object of a pedophile’s warped affections is a Routine feature of growing up in America, and being a victim of a Pederast’s crazed “love” is part of dying. Innocence is no longer an option. Once penetrated, the child becomes a Queer in his own mind, and that is not much different than murder."

It might be a stretch, but if Gannon is conveying a coded message by titling his first comeback column with "fear and loathing" in it, it's not much of a stretch to think that Juan may have been saying something.
