Christopher Hitchens: RIP

                                 (photo of a younger Hitchens, taken at a protest in the 60s)

Although I could never quite understand his defense of the Iraq War during the Bush (Jr.) Administration, he was of course a great man and a sharp mind.

Slate has a nice collection of remembrances (here).

Really sad. I disagreed with him on many things, but I always welcomed his contrarian erudition and humour.
