Christopher Hitchens 1949 - 2011


I first learned of Christopher Hitchens when I read some nasty anti-science articles in some forgotten christian magazine. Who was this man that brought so much ire to himself? I picked up a few of his books and have re-read them maybe a dozen times each. A brilliant writer, orator  and a master debater (hehe) he was one of the four horseman, a juggernaut of unstoppable intellect and relentless aggression to the lies and evil in which religion brings to this world.
He was controversial, sometimes a contrarian for the sake of being one, and oft arrogant, drunk, flirtatious and disrespectful, but what great man or woman  have not harnessed  fuelled and furthered because of their eccentricities? You will be missed Mr. Hitchens.
