Christopher Hitchens Dead: Memory, Blessing, Kick in Head

Much more could be said, here are a few words to remember Christopher Hitchens, who has died, may his memory by a blessing and a kick in the head:

He also professed to have no regrets for a lifetime of heavy smoking and drinking. “Writing is what’s important to me, and anything that helps me do that — or enhances and prolongs and deepens and sometimes intensifies argument and conversation — is worth it to me,” he told Charlie Rose in a television interview in 2010, adding that it was “impossible for me to imagine having my life without going to those parties, without having those late nights, without that second bottle.”
