I almost forgot to say anything about it here but I adapted the posting from 26 February into an actual magazine peice. It appears in the “Old Oregon” section of the current issue of Oregon Quarterly, (cover at left) which as far as I know is sent only to University of Oregon alumni. Sadly they haven’t posted the text online.
Though at least one anonymous blogger in Oregon has noticed the strange coincidence I detail in the piece concerning Thompson’s encounter with the late UO campus personality known as Hatoon whose death roughly coincided with Thompson’s. They were the same age, and her death — she was struck by a car while riding her bike — followed Thompson’s suicide by nine days — and occurred exactly 14 years and one day following their strange meeting. Maybe Doc needed some weird people to keep him company in the great beyond.
I’m not going to say much in the way of details at this moment, but today I resigned from the job I have had for since May 1, 2000, and will start a new one soon. I feel good.
