The Passing of Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011)

    I’m a late comer to Hitchens, having only really discovered him in his last few years.  But it didn’t take me long to form a strong opinion about the caustic, belligerent, opinionated writer.  He was a genius contrarian; full of piss and vinegar, always willing to drop some knowledge, and not afraid to point a finger at anyone’s warm fuzzy BS blockers.  He gave no quarter and he asked none. 

    There’s really nothing I can say about the man that hasn’t been said by others far more eloquent than I could ever be.  So, I’ll just give a few samples of the man himself.
