Standing on principle

September 1, 2009

It’s no secret that I’m nuts for Hunter S. Thompson. I’m reading, savoring, really, a book called Conversations with Hunter S. Thompson. It’s a surprisingly serious read.

Hunter broke with his longtime editor, Jann Wenner of Rolling Stone magazine, because Jann closed his publishing company while Hunter was on the way to Saigon on an assignment. Owing Hunter $75,000.

“You shouldn’t work for someone who would fire you en route to a war zone,” Hunter observed.


You shouldn’t work for someone who would attempt to fire you on the day you return from your father’s funeral, either.

Sometimes you just have to stand on principle.
