Rolling Stone Magazine Publishes Hunter S. Thompson Note

New York (AP) Rolling Stone plans to publish a note that gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson wrote days before he committed suicide in February. Most of Thompson's early writings appeared in the magazine.

His note dated february 16th reads:

"Nno more games. No more bombs. No more walking. No more fun. No more swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No fun for anybody. 67. You are getting greedy. Act your old age. Relax this won't hurt."

Hunter left the note for his wife, Anita. He shot himself four days later at his home near Aspen after weeks of pain from physical problems that included a broken leg and a hip replacement.
