Dictionary meaning, according to Merriam-Webster’s Unabridged: “of or relating to a style of journalism that is a mixture of fact and fiction and is held to be produced under the effect of drugs.”
We read of yesterday’s death of penman Hunter S. Thompson, by his own hand by gunshot, who admitted that he was a happy practitioner of the art (gonzo, not suicide).
Unfortunately, much of what we read these days, laced as it is with efforts to bring humor into our lives, especially in blogs on the internet, could be placed in that category, and, sensing it, readers do not take in much of what they read.
So this writer takes this opportunity to state here and now that what you find here is serious, and should not be taken in as gonzo, although the legal content might lead one to that conclusion.
