I just heard the sad news. Christopher Hitchens has succumbed to esophageal cancer. Creationists all over the world rejoice, thanking Jesus, while reasonable people are mourning. I would say R.I.P., but that would be an insult.
If the music died 02-03-1959, then reason and acerbic wit died 12-15-2011.
I’m not old enough to remember where I was when I heard that John F. Kennedy had been killed, but I do have John Lennon and Christoper Hitchens. Oddly enough I don’t think they would have gotten along very well.
