Goodbye, Christopher Hitchens.

Goodbye Christopher. I am glad that you lived and I have had the pleasure of meeting you a couple of times — once at the Berkeley Repertoire Theater in the 1997 and once at a book release in 1999. I am certainly going to miss your incisive writing. The world is going to be a poorer place for your departure.

  1. I, for one, will shed no tears for this chap. He was not just incisive but an obnoxious hypocrite, and a rabid Bush supporter to the extent that I think he really bought into that black or white “you’re with us or against us” philosophy. This is the same guy who, on the other hand, would take his criticism of Clinton for bombing some two-bit thugs in east Europe to divert attention from his sexual escapades to such an extreme, it reminds me of some inquisitions from the dark ages.
