Why the Doc shouldn’t gamble

From HST’s latest ESPN column.

It was our old neighbor Omar, who still owes me $90,000 from a previous gambling disaster, which ended tragically in a long-ago bet involving his little sister and the New York Yankees and a rash of White Slavery accusations against me and Anita and everything we stand for. So the sudden appearance of Omar after all this time was not an entirely comfortable thing to see.

Requisite random Google result:
Hunter: the Strange and Savage Life of Hunter S. Thompson.
(Methinks he paid the biographer extra to put “strange and savage” in there.)
