Hitchens on Cancer and Atheism
« on: August 09, 2010, 07:36:45 AM »
I had no idea that Christopher Hitchens was so ill.  I could listen to him talking all day long.  I hope he's around for a few more years yet...

he's a serious alkie, i expected he'd get ill sooner or later :(

don't agree with much of what he says now but he's made a big contribution to thought no doubt

I agree with Hitchens about atheism, but he's always struck me as a little too precious, like a poor man's Gore Vidal…I don't think he's as clever as he believes himself to be.

As Salman Rushdie wrote today, 'A great voice falls silent.'
