Rolling Stone, the magazine which formed a tumultuous relationship with the late writer Hunter S. Thompson early in his career and intermittently throughout his lifetime, will publish one final piece by the gonzo journalist, the note he wrote to his wife before taking his own life back in February. The note is mildly cryptic, but it contains Thompson's clipped, laconic delivery and his barely contained displeasure with growing old, which could always be gleaned from many of the pieces he wrote in the latter half of his career. In the meantime, we'll have to continue to wait and see if The Rum Diary, the movie version of Thompson's first novel (though not the first one he published) will ever see the big screen.
