Christopher Hitchens Just Died

The influential writer and cultural critic Christopher Hitchens died on Thursday at the age of 62 from complications of cancer of the esophagus. Hitchens confronted his disease in part by writing, bringing the same unsparing insight to his mortality that he had directed at so many other subjects.
I didn't agree with everything he wrote. But I'd be thrilled to write even half as well as he did.
