Christopher Hitchens RIP

I didn't always agree with he had to to say but the world is a poorer for his passing. Christopher died last nioght after a long struggle with cancer.

I didn't always agree with him either but I too was very sad to read of his passing.

It is sad news Claude

Agreed 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 blighter
Who seeks a politer
Alternative 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!
