HUNTER S. THOMPSON [n.18 Julho 1937-2005]

"Winston Churchill said "The first casualty of War is always Truth." Churchill also said "In wartime, the Truth is so precious that it should always be surrounded by a bodyguard of Lies."

"Quando as coisas ficam estranhas, o estranho vira profissional."

"... The eye of the journalist would be functioning as a camera. The writing would be selective and necessarily interpretative but once the image was written, the words would be final; in the same way that a Cartier-Bresson photograph is always (he says) the full-frame negative. No alterations in the darkroom, no cutting or cropping, no spotting... No editing ."
