Life in the closing days of the empire
A professional provacateur who delighted in poking holes in sacred cows just to poke holes. Attempted to lead the debauched life with predictable results.
never another like him, his belief was great and he never waivered-that is admirable.
He had intllectual fire power like few others. Almost up there with Bill Buckley and others... he was a delight to listen to because he just made you think...critically think. He will be missed.
A thinker's thinker. Few like this anymore, which leads me to think, (even more so now via his passing) that we. are. doomed...
Toad,I enjoyed your subtly ironic comment. As a staunch (militant?) athiest, Hitchens would presumably not believe in another side. A dreary thought if you ask me.
Belief is just that.
He will be greatly missed.
"We look forward to your reports from the other side."That's a very thoughtful tribute to lend a man who was an outspoken atheist to the bitter end.
