From Telluride to Austin Cover-ups.
Met up with a bunch of buddies of Hunter Thompson. Man, he lived the life. Willie was drank under the table by what he described as 'One Crazy Dude'. Anne shared some items regarding Hunter. Joe hails out of Durango and was Hunter's best friend. Many thanks for the stories.

The city of Austin has come to an agreement to accept Police Lt. Rene Phan’s resignation from the Austin Police Department a few weeks after Phan was put on leave pending an internal investigation.
Phan will receive his salary as well as the $400 health insurance copay given to Austin police over the next 12 weeks under terms of the agreement.
Phan was placed on leave on Nov. 25 after a complaint was made against him. City officials declined to comment on the agreement and give more details on the complaint.
In 2011, Phan was one of two officers suspended three days for neglecting duties and “using poor judgment in condoning conduct by another officer that rendered that employee unable to perform assigned duties,” as city Human Resources Director Tricia Wiechmann said at the time. (This is what the citizens referred to as the Garage Incident. I had to chuckle on this one after hearing about it from the McDonald's Crew. I mean it's pretty hard to perform duties with your pants around your ankles.)
Now you know why my books . . . JusThis & Brand of Justice . . . are fictional accounts of police behavior that read like non-fiction! And to think one book reviewer felt the stories were not plausible. Think again and be careful out there.
