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.”
