Champion bloke. Could murder ****s in debate.
Hitch 22 was quality too.
RIP. Hope he has a great afterlife.
For some utterly depressing reading.

He's either saying "****! I was wrong!" or nothing at all.
RIP to his friends and family.

RIP. Great mind, even if he did go a little neo-con after 9/11.
Reminds me of the old joke about an atheist at his own funeral: all dressed up and nowhere to go.

Never liked him but was one of the greatest debaters and intellectuals of our times. At least he enjoyed his life to the full and didn't give a **** what anyone thought.
One of the best. He just destroyed people with his arguments. Will be missed.
Why Christopher Hitchens Mattered | Reuters
From the article:
I remember when Christopher Hitchens first said that if you gave Jerry Falwell an enema you could bury him in a matchbox.Once in a debate in San Diego I said something about the limitations of science to which he objected. “I have been at many podiums with the Rabbi” he said, “and this is so egregious a statement that I am going to give him a chance to retract it before I have to refute it.”
The man was always quality.

One of the finest orators of our time, and will be missed. I didn't agree with a lot of what he said - his support for war on abstract concepts in particular - but I'd be lying if I said he didn't inspire me as well.
"Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."
Not everyone he argued thought they were amongst the chosen people. Hitchens was one of those Atheists who wanted to convert people from their beliefs. That is arrogance.
RIP. Was very sad to hear about his death.
Not someone I always agreed with, but you had to respect him, and he was a very entertaining writer.
Why Orwell Matters is a great read for anyone interested in Orwell as a writer, incidentally. Nice title for that obit.
