You know, the unfortunate thing is that Gonzo is a smart guy. He could add a lot to the board, if he wanted to.
Don't get me wrong. I get tired of the way he baits people - especially when it comes to issues or race. But there have been occasions where I was impressed by something he wrote; both in the concept about which he was writing, and the way that he wrote it. And I wouldn't even mind that he can be controversial, if he wasn't just being controversial for controversy's sake.
I guess some people just prefer negative attention.
