Christopher Hitchens

Christopher Hitchens died yesterday of esophageal cancer.  I just wanted to say that this loss is enormous to me, as he represented the kind of critical thinking and rational courage that is missing in most of our discourse these days.  We will miss him.

My favorite moment for Hitch:  When debating Mos Def, her referred to his opponent as "Mr. Definately"

What shall we do without him?  The world is a lesser place.

That's all I have to say about that.
