I've read and enjoyed some Hunter S. Thompson books, understand his complaints about society and government without wanting to emulate his drug use. I don't think I'm politically motivated to complain about him, but this guy left an example of a really inconsiderate suicide. I just heard on Democracy Now that he was supposedly on the phone to his wife or ex-wife when he shot himself, and some relatives were in another room of the house.

If you really got to go, at least be considerate and do like that journalist a few months back who left a warning note outside the door of his apartment to prevent strangers from being traumatized by his corpse: "Please call 911. Do not come in."
