Depp pays for cannon to shoot gonzo's ashes
David Boyle pointed us to this story on Salon that actor Johnny Depp (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow, From Hell, etc.) is paying for the tower and cannon to shoot out Hunter S. Thompson's remains on to his ranch. It is good of Depp to do this for it is a fitting tribute to a journalist who lived a unique life. Our country needs journalists of Thompson's caliber now more than ever for the man's courage and writing ability were peerless.
