This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Earlier Duke has a line in his notebook. Kill the body and the head will die. Then he discusses the state of the world, with both Kennedy's dead and then talks about Joe Frazier as a piece of human hamburger. Duke has a conversation with another reporter in the press tent before the beginning of the Mint 400. They say these same things to each other.
   While out covering the race in the press bronco, two dune buggies with american flags and other decals all over them, full of men who look like petty officers from San Diego stop them. They demand to know where the race is happening. One jeep with three men stops them. They have a dead deer on the hood.
   The driver of the bronco slams on the brakes and Duke spills his beer on his crotch. He yells that the driver is fired. Lacerda is with Duke and he demands they keep going to get total coverage. Duke tells him he is fired. His beer is full of dust and is a sludge he pours out as they leave him in the desert.
   Duke and Gonzo go to see Debbie Reynolds. They park right in front of the building and are yelled at by the valet. They jump out and give them a 5 dollar tip to park the car. They tell them they are old friends of Debbie's and used to romp with her. They park in front and pay the valet. They go inside and Gonzo tells the man in front of the theater that they are old friends of Debbie's and used to romp with her.
   Before going into the Circus Circus, Duke and Gonzo huff some ether from a soaked kleenex. They soak a small american flag and huff the ether from that.
