Christopher Hitchens, Dead at 62

Christopher Hitchens wouldn't want us to wax nostalgic, and long for his effervescent life force. He'd say "bollacks" to that sort of sentiment. Hitchens was a dyed-in-the-wool atheist, a confirmed anti-god sort of person. And so am I. So, I can be sad for his passing. Lament that I won't read a new volume of his musings. But I won't ponder whether or not he's suspended above me in an etheral, extra- scientific embodiment. He's just gone. And that's sad. Even if his political ideas were bollacks.

  1. I can probably think he said "Oh Shit" if he found out that he was wrong about there being a God.

  2. Actually, I think he'd probably argue his way out of the situation!
