Raining hot death from the sky

If Hunter S. Thompson gets what he always wanted, his earthly remains will soon get blown up real good.
Thompson’s family says that the writer wanted his ashes shot out of a cannon, but they want to go one better than that. The man who shot himself in the head may be packed into a shell, fired 800 feet into the sky and explode in a blossom of color 600 feet across as the world’s first (dead) human firework.
Thompson’s apparently heroic deed of killing himself rather than face another day as an old man with nothing new to say has sent sales of his books similarly skyrocketing, pushing Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to #16 at Amazon.com.
