The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Infinitely sad...RIP Christopher Hitchens!
I didn't always agree with him either but I too was very sad to read of his passing.
It is sad news ClaudeAgreed Susan It is a nasty thing to say perhaps but the fact that Christopher is dead and his vile shit of a brother is alive proves that there is no loving god
He concluded one of his last articles with the words "don't keep the faith." Considering most of the faiths that prevail today, maybe the world would be a better place if fewer people kept their faith. R.I.P., Hitchens... some of us will remember you.
Oh, the CAPTCHA text on this one is irresistible!On Blogger, a heckuva stunt:The CAPTCHA they gave me is "flunt".No need for a blighterWho seeks a politerAlternative rhyme to use "c**t".(Don't tell me Hitchens would not have approved... of course he would have!)
Agreed Steve. Best not to keep it!I am sure he would have smiled at that CAPTCHA!
