RIP: Christopher Hitchens

I was just reading the foreward to his latest book, Arguably last night and had made a feed to his www.dailyhitchens.com blog earlier in the week so I could follow his writings more closely.  After finishing the forward, I looked to his blog with enthusiasm but it had not been updated.

It is hard to imagine a more gifted writer or someone who loved the language more than he did.

As Stalky would say, a great man.
