So long Hitch

The world just got a little duller and a lot less literate.

Christopher Hitchens, 1949-2011.

Working out, Hitch-style.

    A news flash on Twitter: Hitchens just met God and guess what?

    He thinks she’s hilarious.

    All men die, some men live.

    Cheers, Chris.

    Hitch is the one who firmed up my atheism. God is Not Great was such a wonderful book for me and I’ll forever be grateful to him. His quick wit and comprehensive knowledge of the subjects that he debated will continue to be an inspiration for how I want to train my mind.

    I don’t really have much to say at Hitch’s passing. He was always really good with wit and oratory.

    His deft commentary will be missed.

    “Liberal fascists” might consider him an apostate, but that says more about them than it does about Hitchens. I had great respect for him whether I agreed with him (atheism) or not (Iraq). He had an incredibly sharp mind the like of which we won’t be seeing anytime soon.

    He was an awesome speaker and writer who knew how to use humour without being petty and weird. I liked what Andrew Coyne tweeted the night Hitchens died:

    I think the only tribute we can pay Christopher Hitchens is to try to write more like him: that directness, that verve, that command.

    Couldn’t agree more.

    Holy cow, bleat. I can’t believe some of the spiteful snarling… Hitch would love it!!! 😆

    Hitch was never one to back down from a fight. I’m sure he would give them all the finger, suck on some brandy and have a cigar. That’s what was so great about him, didn’t care about political stripes just about what he thought to be true. If you didn’t like it, I’m sure you could go suck an egg for all he cared.

    Hitchens was one of those people who showed me that you don’t have to always agree with someone to respect their intellect and talent. I’m tired, oh so tired, of the prevailing progressive notion that everyone who doesn’t toe the line on every issue is either an apostate or a troll.


Wait. What?
