RIP Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011)

I did not agree with everything he said. I did not agree with his positions on the War in Iraq, his position about Zionism and his bashing of the Clintons, but I agreed with everything else he said or wrote. There will never be another one like Christopher.

“What happens to the faith healer and the shaman when any poor citizen can see the full effect of drugs or surgeries, administered without ceremonies or mystifications? Roughly the same thing as happens to the rainmaker when the climatologist turns up, or to the diviner from the heavens when schoolteachers get hold of elementary telescopes.”

Awesome FSX–ORBx video

 

As some of you know I am an MS-Flight Simulator enthusiast (FSX). I use ORBx sceneries whenever possible and can’t give enough praise to their quality and their service and staff.

A sim colleague, Narajan has recently put out a video showcasing some of the latest ORBx sceneries. I recommend you watch in 1080p HD and see the quality of Flight Simulation today.

I do a lot of candids and street photography but seldom publish here (though they are all on my website).

This one is an exception as I found it cute, a girl having a photosession with a friend.

Shot this weekend in Miami Beach.

Colbert interviews Neil deGrasse Tyson

 

If you have 90 minutes to spare, you should watch Stephen Colbert (out of character) interview  Neil deGrasse Tyson in 2010.

Well worth your time, trust me.
