Morning Bites: Hunter S. Thompson treasure trove, Naomi Wolf at OWS, Tim Kinsella, Julian Barnes, and more
How much Hunter S. Thompson can you take? If the answer is, “There is never enough of the insanity!” Playboy has all of the articles that he wrote for the magazine up in one place waiting just for you! Naomi Wolf arrested at Occupy Wall Street. Between beating the crap out of peaceful protestors, arresting Wolf and Cornel West getting cuffed over the weekend, the police seem to be hellbent on making sure that everybody hates them.
