Questions Worth Asking (Maybe)

    So many reasons, but one is that it took journalist Brenda Buttner from us at all-too-young of an age. Buttner was best known as a Fox Business reporter, but I knew of her because she was responsible for the greatest motorcycle magazine story ever. Here’s the story behind the story: Hunter S. Thompson – Going Gonzo. And here’s a link to the actual HST story that made Buttner a legend – Song of the Sausage Creature. If you watch the tribute to her in the title link, you will get an idea of what Buttner brought to journalism. (Note – She’s probably the only person ever to work for a motorcycle magazine who had been a Rhodes Scholar!)
